NCCHC National Conference Returns in October


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

“The national conference is extremely important because it is the only place where correctional health professionals from across the country can meet peers and experts, compare their operations and freely ask questions about common challenges,” said Deborah. Ross, CCHP, CEO of NCCHC.

The conference is expecting around 1,500 attendees from prisons, jails and juvenile detention centers across the country. Sessions will cover topics such as improving transfer reporting, breaking down silos, compassion fatigue, new federal guidelines for treating opioid use disorder in corrections, telehealth, the effects of COVID-19 and the use of trauma-informed care to improve outcomes. Additionally, the NCCHC will also unveil the new Standards for Child Health Services at the event. Participants are entitled to up to 32.5 hours of continuing education for doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers and others.
