Chronic Disease Management in the Correctional Setting

An online continuing education course for nurses, medical health professionals, and other interested individuals working in a correctional setting.

Healthcare practice in correctional institutions is based on the same standards of practice as care delivered in the community. The secure setting and legal status of the patient population place unique constraints and obligations on care provision. Managing the chronic conditions of the incarcerated patient population is a major part of correctional health care practice.



After participating in this educational session, you will be able to:
Explain the principles governing a standard chronic disease program in a correctional setting.
Outline key elements in chronic care delivered by the healthcare team
Describe specific challenges to delivering appropriate chronic care in a correctional setting
Requirements for success completion are to view the module, participate in the interactive check points, and complete the review questions and post test.
