With the aging case management workforce, bringing up younger professionals is a vitally current issue. This editorial focuses on the millennial generation of potential case managers, those born between 1980 and 2000, as these are the ages of the most likely “replacements.” Traditional mentoring focuses on sponsorship and coaching. Is this enough to bring passion in the younger generation? Adding the model of “reverse mentoring” may be key in engaging these professionals. Reverse mentoring focuses on knowledge sharing and leadership development.

Professional Case Management: The Leader in Evidenced-Based Practice wishes all of you a well-earned National Case Management Week.
