The NCCHC National Conference on Correctional Health Care will take place in Las Vegas on October 22-26. The conference will feature more than 100 sessions on medical care, mental health care, substance abuse disorder treatment, suicide prevention, nursing, and other critical topics.

“The National Conference is incredibly important because it is the one place correctional health professionals from around the country can meet peers and experts, benchmark their operations, and freely ask questions about common challenges,” says NCCHC CEO Deborah Ross, CCHP.

The conference expects approximately 1500 participants from jails, prisons, and juvenile detention facilities across the country. Sessions will cover topics such as better handoff reporting, breaking down silos, compassion fatigue, new federal guidelines for opioid use disorder treatment in corrections, telehealth, the effects of COVID-19, and using trauma-informed care to improve outcomes. In addition, The NCCHC will also unveil the new Standards for Juvenile Health Services at the event. Participants are eligible for up to 32.5 hours of continuing education for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and others.
