Language filter (English and Spanish) was included in the search. The inclusion criteria were working age population with musculoskeletal disorders, studies that described or evaluated case management interventions, and return to work interventions. Military personnel, and rheumatic and surgical pathologies were excluded. Independent pairs reviewed all cites and articles and extracted data, and narrative synthesis was carried out.</jats:p></jats:sec><jats:sec><jats:title>Results</jats:title><jats:p>Our searches identified 1950 possible relevant articles, of which 27 were included for data extraction. Of these, 15 papers included definitions of case management, and 14 common elements were identified. Twenty two explained the role of case manager and in 18 a description of tasks was found. In 25 articles referral services were mentioned. The most common defining elements were ‘return to work intervention’, ‘multidisciplinary assessment’ and ‘interdisciplinary intervention’ (53.8%). The 40% of the articles emphasized the ’coordination’, ‘to influence multiple factors’ (33.3%) and ‘individual approach’ (26.7%). The tasks included ’to establish goals and plan the rehabilitation for return to work’ (50%), and ’supervise or coordinate return to work process and to offer/refer the employee to services/adaptations or therapeutic workplaces’ (36.4%) The most common offered services were mental health (64.0%), and rehabilitation (48.0%).</jats:p></jats:sec><jats:sec><jats:title>Conclusions</jats:title><jats:p>Despite the increase in the number of published articles dealing with case management, usually it is not clearly defined. This scoping review emphasizes the need to define case management and its organizational characteristics, and proposes an extended and updated definition.</jats:p></jats:sec> 5 [] ["Merc\u00e8 Soler Font", "Jos\u00e9 Maria Ramada Rodilla", "Jos\u00e9 Maria Gonzalez", "Francisco Palencia Sanchez", "Consol Serra Pujadas"] [""] [""] [""]
