Course Overview:
In the correctional environment, nurses are faced with many obstacles to delivering care, so it is imperative that we fully understand the most common critical conditions our patients present with. 65% of new inmates qualify as having substance abuse disorder or addiction to drugs and/or alcohol (7). Withdrawal from alcohol and drugs is a medical condition that needs intervention from the nurse at the earliest opportunity.  Being able to deliver high-quality and effective care to this population requires appropriate assessment, treatment, referral, and communication between the multidisciplinary teams of medical, mental health, and security staff.
