Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Programs
Over the past decade, there has been increased scrutiny on the relationship between violence, public health and nursing intervention. As growing numbers of youth encounter the criminal justice system, the number of those detained in secure correctional facilities also rises. Founded over 100 years ago on the premise that youth were less culpable and more amenable to treatment and rehabilitation than adults were, the American juvenile justice system is now faced with the fact that our youth are in crisis and referred to correctional facilities at rates higher than ever before. Correctional facilities often find themselves without necessary human and other resources to meet educational, social, health and other services needed by youth and mandated by law. In a unique collaboration between the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and the Louisiana Department of Corrections, the School of Medicine assumed responsibility for the medical, dental, and mental health care of all juveniles in detention in the state of Louisiana. Through its participation in this initiative, the School of Nursing has participated in nursing leadership consultation, staff training and development, and research collaboration. Needs assessments and analysis of practice data have revealed consistent themes distinguishing correctional nursing practice. Purpose of Presentation: The purpose of this presentation is to apply a developing forensic nursing conceptual framework to the description of nursing initiatives in a university-corrections partnership, focusing on the care of pregnant adolescents within the correctional facility. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this symposium, the participant will: · Examine concepts framing the specialty of correctional/forensic nursing · Explore evidence-based practice opportunities in a university-correctional partnership · Distinguish needs of incarcerated pregnant adolescents
