When the caseload changes hands from one
Case Manager to another.
When the Case Manager feels overwhelmed
and unable to cope with the size and
complexity of their caseload.
When administrative functions or paperwork
are prioritised.
When planning is pushed aside because of
pressure to gain job starts and outcomes.
When a large influx of new clients arrives on
the caseload.
When process rather than practice becomes
the priority for the Case Manager.
