OMCMG Educational luncheon meetings are held the 1st Thursday* of most months at rotating locations in the greater Portland** metropolitan area. Our meetings are open to all those interested in case management and the healthcare continuum. Meetings typically begin with networking and registration followed by noon lunch service, association announcements and a brief message from our sponsor partners. At 12:15 the featured 1 hour CE presentation by a local or national expert will provide new resources and strategies to enhance your case management practice. Afterward, a bit more networking time if your schedule allows.
*There are no regularly scheduled luncheon meetings in January, May, July and November. Check the calendar for special OMCMG events scheduled in these months.
**Luncheons in Salem, Oregon! See calendar for the current schedule.

The process your patient or client must go through to find the right assisted living or care facility can be overwhelming. They are often starting from scratch, with little knowledge of levels of care, what is in their price range or even where to start.
The goal of a Referral Agent is to simplify this process and offer your patient or client a supportive, compassionate and knowledgeable specialist that can help them find a living arrangement where they will be comfortable. Referral Agents can be instrumental, not only in helping a patient or client find housing, but in helping them understand what it is they really want and need in the first place.
Park in the parking garage off Glisan Street, take the walkway to the hospital, turn left and the Social Room will be straight ahead.
