Correctional healthcare nurses provide medical, dental, and mental health assessments that track the inmate patient healthcare status from intake through intra-system transfer and onto release. It is imperative the assessments be completed in a systematic and consistent manner. This course is designed to enhance your knowledge and skills in performing these health assessments. This training will help you to develop more confidence in completing a detailed clinical history and physical examination. Upon completion of this process, you will be able to identify those inmates who are appropriate for immediate placement in general population, those who need referral for additional healthcare services, and those whose health status requires immediate referral for emergent services. It will also deepen your understanding of the correct examination techniques for each of the organ systems by providing step-by-step guidelines. There are many examples and interactive exercises that will assist you in applying what you have learned. When you return to your facility, you will be well-prepared for conducting comprehensive health assessments!
