Abstract: Today; occupational case management is implemented by a variety of occupational health professionals, including occupational health nurses. For example, occupational health nurses are exploring employee satisfaction with occupational case management (Conbere, 1992). At this time, however, empirical research is limited, and measurement tools to accurately document effectiveness are virtually nonexistent. According to Marschke (1993), existing case management research is limited to descriptive data and usually focuses on only one of the three case management components: structure, process, or outcome.
