Date: Wednesday, May 27, 2020
Time: 2:00 PM ET - 3:00 PM ET
Presenter: Dr. Bruce Herdman & Kungchiha Joebaham, Philadelphia Department of Prisons
Title of Presentation: Jail Health & Safety Protocols Due to COVID-19
Description: The Philadelphia Department of Prisons (PDP) sees approximately 23,000 persons enter their facilities each year and completes an extensive intake and screening within 4 hours of entry. This includes screenings for opioid use disorders and the first steps for reentry planning and continued care. The PDP opened its doors to RSAT TTA inviting us to film a documentary on this nationally recognized 4-hour intake process in addition to their extensive Medication Assisted Treatment program. The film focuses on the importance of an expedited intake, screening for opioid use disorders, administration of buprenorphine, and the avoidance of diversion through partnerships with the City of Philadelphia’s Centers of Excellence.

However, since filming, an even greater challenge has fallen on the PDP and all jails and prisons around the country, COVID-19. This pandemic required immediate screening not only for the protection and care of entering persons but the entire population of incarcerated persons and all corrections staff, including correctional officers, medical personnel, etc. Not surprisingly, the PDP has been able to embed new COVID-19 screening procedures and policies to respond to this new challenge within its existing 4 hour intake and screening program as well as continue to offer opioid treatment to its detainees in need.

During this webinar, we will be premiering a video on Philadelphia Department of Prisons' innovative intake process and MAT programming as well as their protocol and procedure changes related to the pandemic!

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Explain how to adhere to guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC) and the Bureau of Prisons (BOP)
  • Identify strategies to continue offering treatment and services to persons with substance use disorders
  • Implement practices and procedures required to promote a safe and healthy environment within a correctional facility
