AAH1808: Providing Healthcare in the Prison Environment

10 days ago

This webinar is sponsored by the Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) on September 11, 2018 from 2–3pm ET. Earn 1.0 AIA LU/HSW.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that one of the best lessons to be learned from the last century is that public health can no longer ignore the needs of prison health. The mandate to provide care, along with the influx of those who have had little or no medical care prior to incarceration, has resulted in a greater demand for inmate health services.

Though there are numerous built environmental models for prisoner health care, little has been done to assess these environments or their impacts on inmates in a systematic way. Presenter Dave Redemske will share some of the outcomes from his study as part of the HDR Fellowship program, shedding light on the healthcare process and settings for prison inmates, as well as recommendations for the future.

Learning objectives:

After participating in this webinar attendees will:

  1. Identify the connections between prison health and under-served community health systems.
  2. Compare the different models of prison healthcare in relation to the built environment.
  3. Examine systematic improvements to expand access to care for less cost.
  4. Analyze the community health impacts of mass incarceration.
