Criminal Justice Violence Trauma (CJVT) RIG Symposium: Enhancing Health Equity for Criminal Justice-Involved Populations: Theoretical, Methodological, and Practice Perspectives
The purpose of this symposium is to illustrate examples of nurse researchers’ theoretical, methodological, and practice contributions to nursing science within the restricted CJ health care system and subsequently to foster health equity via policy and practice initiatives for marginalized CJ-involved populations.
- Expose and explore theoretical, methodological, and practice issues contributing to the health inequity experienced by individuals receiving health care within CJ settings.
- Propose theoretical, policy and practice related solutions for reducing health inequity in this population through education of health care professionals and reducing obstacles to health such as stigmatization, constraints to self-care, and exclusion from research.
- Discuss strategies for overcoming barriers and optimizing opportunities to provide evidenced based care and conduct research in CJ settings.
