The role of the trauma case manager is multifaceted: coordinator, facilitator and educator. It requires an expert knowledge of trauma care and the consequences of injury to the human body. This paper discusses the role of the trauma case manager in the care of a multiply injured trauma patient. The case manager's knowledge and activation of resources, ongoing evaluation, and ability to reset priorities allowed the patient, his family, and the healthcare team to achieve the highest level of function and personal satisfaction.
