Correctional Health Care Conference
From Saturday, April 29 2017 -  8:00am
To Tuesday, May 02 2017 - 5:00pm

Correctional health care clinicians, administrators and others will gather to learn about latest advancements and best practices in delivering health care behind bars at the Spring Conference on Correctional Health Care, to be held April 29-May 2, 2017, in Atlanta.  The meeting is presented by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care, the nation’s leading authority on health care systems in jails, prisons and juvenile detention facilities.

The conference will feature more than 50 educational sessions on clinical, administrative and legal aspects of correctional health care. In-depth preconference seminars will explore ethical standards and guidelines for correctional health professionals, suicide prevention, continuous quality improvement, assessment skills for nurses and NCCHC’s Standards for managing medical and mental health care delivery in prisons, jails and juvenile facilities. Other topics on the agenda include mental illness, substance abuse, gender dysphoria, chronic care, pain management and caring for special populations.

The four-day conference is recommended for any correctional professional who is interested in learning more about health care for the incarcerated population – currently more than 2 million adults and juveniles – and its implications for public health and safety.

*Professionals can earn up to 26.5 hours of continuing education credit by attending the conference and pre-conference seminars. Highlights also include networking activities, breakfast roundtable discussions, educational lunches and an exhibit hall featuring hundreds of products and services to support correctional health care. All conference activities take place at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
