Educational Luncheon: Integrating Excellence through Continuous Quality Improvement in Mental Health

NCCHC's standard on Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) is a requirement for any correctional health care program. Historically, CQI efforts focused on the medical aspects of health care, but finding opportunities for improvement in behavioral health programs is equally important. The CQI process is also frequently misunderstood, resulting in deficiencies in one or more compliance indicators. This session covers the requirements of a robust CQI program that meets NCCHC standards and applies it to mental health programs.

Educational Objectives

  • Review requirements of NCCHC Standard A-06 Continuous Quality Improvement
  • Discuss ways to incorporate quality improvement into behavioral health programs
  • Describe a mental health quality improvement project from the Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex

Level: Intermediate

This session made possible by a medical education grant from Centurion Health.
