Correctional health care conference hits key issues for incarcerated

Nashville, Tenn.—The National Conference on Correctional Health Care, Oct. 26-30 at the Nashville Convention Center, will cover some of the most compelling topics in correctional health care, including the Affordable Care Act, mental health, nursing, clinical care, special populations and more.

The conference brings peers together to share lessons learned in the field and new research. The meeting offers up to 32 hours of continuing education credit. The exhibit hall will showcase 100 companies with corrections-focused products and services.

Other program features include a first look at the to-be-released 2014 NCCHC Standards for Jails and Prisons, a seven-part nursing leadership program, a focus on mental health issues and chronic care and discharge planning. It will be the field's first opportunity for correctional mental health professionals to take the new mental health specialty certification exam.

The setting for the meeting is downtown Nashville, which offers visitors a variety of live music every night, from concert halls to small clubs featuring nearly every genre of music. Visitors can also enjoy the city's attractions, shopping, arts and culture, tours and dining.

A guaranteed special conference rate at the Renaissance Nashville is available through Oct. 5. Visit the website for more information on the conference, CE programs, preconference seminars and the hotel.
