Improving Access to Treatment, Bringing NIATx to Corrections

Past Event
January 28, 2016, 8:00am , Eastern

Hosted by the CSG Justice Center

From 2011 to 2013, the CSG Justice Center partnered with NIATx—a learning collaborative within the University of Wisconsin, Madison’s Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies—to bring the NIATx process improvement model to criminal justice agencies in three jurisdictions: DeKalb County, Georgia; Durham County, North Carolina; and the State of Maryland. The work culminated in a paper—Bringing NIATx to Corrections: Three Pilot Studies—which identified the ability to track, collect, and use data as challenges across the three pilot sites during the implementation of the process improvement model. This led to the development of process measures at the interface between criminal justice and behavioral health. This webinar discusses how individuals access treatment as they reenter their communities from prisons and jails, as well as the process measures that can assist in reentry.
