New Resources for Physicians working in Correctional Facilities
CFPC’s Prison Health Program Committee has developed an Orientation Manual, which provides helpful information and practical advice for physicians and trainees who are working in or are interested in working in correctional facilities.
The Prison Health Program Committee has also developed a document summarizing best practices in the Recruitment and Retention of physicians in correctional facilities. This document has been shared with senior decision makers for their consideration and implementation. Physicians are also encouraged to advocate for adoption of these strategies in the jurisdictions and institutions in which they work.
