MDT Case Manager - Volumes 1, 2 & 3

The McKenzie Case Manager courses are provided by The McKenzie Institute, USA to provide web-based instruction designed for the advanced McKenzie MDT clinician. These courses present complex clinical practice scenarios through a collection of cases that will add to your patient experience base and help you focus on the power of utilizing the information gathered on The McKenzie Institute Assessment forms to lead to patient classification and management strategies.

Each Case Manager course (volume) currently consists of eight (8) individual cases and utilises interactive McKenzie Institute assessment forms. The cases are based on actual patients seen by senior instructors of The McKenzie Institute. 

  • Case Manager Volume 1 examines four lumbar and four cervical patients.
  • Case Manager Volume 2 examines two lumbar, two cervical, two upper extremity and two lower extremity patients.
  • Case Manager Volume 3 examines three lumbar, three cervical, one upper extremity and one lower extremity patient.

To thoroughly study and work through each of the eight-case Volumes, expect an average of 12 total contact hours for each Volume.

The McKenzie Institute, USA will send you a certificate for CEUs within two weeks of successful completion of the eight cases and submission of the final course evaluation.  

Your registration will remain active for 90 days from the time you commence.

Please note: The Case Manager is hosted on The McKenzie Institute, USA website. You will be redirected to that website, as part of the registration process.
