Training and Education
Accreditation Preparation — By reviewing your current health services policies, procedures, and practices, we determine if your health program is compliant with NCCHC’s Standards for Health Services for prisons or jails. Through subsequent monitoring, we evaluate whether further changes are required and provide clear recommendations for achieving compliance.
Certification Preparation — Through individual assessments, we determine whether staff members are on track for NCCHC professional certification programs and make recommendations for additional training and preparation, when necessary.
Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) — Our crisis intervention training teaches your correctional staff and administrators to recognize psychiatric symptoms, calm disruptive behaviors, and apply de-escalation techniques to help them avoid potentially violent interactions and create safe outcomes for staff and incarcerated populations alike.
Health Care Space Design
The physical space that is used to provide health services is a critical component of high-quality care. Through detailed examination, we assess overall clinic and housing design, patient flow, staff workstations, and equipment placement, with special attention paid to suicide prevention measures.
