Event Registration - American College of Correctional Physicians
2018 ACCP Spring Conference3/24/18 - 3/24/18
This year’s conference will deal heavily with legal and mental health issues, with a focus on the use of Isolation. Based on the feedback from a shorter session on litigation involving the correctional physician, we are expanding that session this year to include more in-depth education related to physician as defendant and expert. The training will include a mock deposition which will be video recorded. The lawyer will then use the recording – as he might in litigation – during parts of a mock trial.
Closely related to this, another speaker will help us navigate another common and litigation-prone situation: differentiating between medical vs. mental health etiologies in a patient with bizarre or agitated behavior. Many of these patients end up in isolation, which will be the focus of the rest of our conference. We will hear perspectives from two different voices: mental health professional and patient. Our mental health professionals will review the evidence for harm from isolation and help us design safer systems.
Arguably most importantly, we will end the day with ACCP’s signature “ACCP Talks to its Patients” session. During this session, a panel of 4-5 formerly incarcerated individuals of different genders and races will share their stories of YEARS in isolation and engage in a conversation with the audience. If you are a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant practicing in a jail or prison in the US, this is a conference you cannot afford to miss.
