ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to explore the legalization of care manager system in the Korean Long-Term Care Insurance Law through checking the problems of Japanese care manager system and the current care manager-concerned laws in Korea and Japan. The Korean Long-Term Care Insurance Law only explains the job descriptions of care manager without defining care managers. So meanings of a helping profession and unique jobs as care manager should be prescribed in the Law. Care managers would be better to be accredited by national qualification tests, and regulations of education and training, re-training should be prescribed for the professional ability. Besides, care managers' interventions and duties, penalties should be regulated. Contents of care plan should be prescribed, including definitions of care plans, service deliveries based on care plans. Furthermore, clientele's contract intention and the right to know also should be respected in the Law. Finally, the correction of the current care plan format is desired.
