437 Envisioning a New Therapeutic Triad: Nurse, Officer, and Patient

A recent study found that "complex relationships" described the nurse-patient therapeutic relationship in correctional facilities. This relationship is characterized by the uniqueness of the setting, acculturation of health care staff, and a reconceptualizing the nurse-patient relationship as a triad with correctional officers. This presentation will discuss these findings and explore how a therapeutic triad can potentially improve the health care of incarcerated women.
