Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

ACA has partnered with the University of Maryland to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) at our conferences. CEUs help employees earn professional recognition for completing educational and training programs. Participants who register for the program will earn 1.0 CEU from the University of Maryland for every 10 hours of program activities that they attend. After the Conference, ACA will send participants their certificates.


At the conclusion of this activity, the participants will be able to:

* Demonstrate competence in the limitations of correctional medicine concerning specific aspects of patient care

* Determine those inmates/detainees that have a Constitutional right to health care and at what level care must be provided

* Choose between differing approaches to medical, mental health and substance abuse problems suffered by inmates

* Establish coordination and cooperation between security and treatment personnel


Physicians, nurses, mental health professionals, correctional administrators, treatment staff, security, educational staff, other corrections personnel, and public health professionals who works with offenders


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the Nova Southeastern University Health Professions Division and the American Correctional Association. Nova Southeastern University Health Professions Division is accredited by the ACCME to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) for physicians and takes responsibility for the content, quality, and scientific integrity of this CME activity. The Nova Southeastern University Baccalaureate Nursing Program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc. (NLNAC) 61 Broadway, 33rd Floor, New York, NY 10006, 800-669-1656. The total number of approved CME credit hours and CE contact hours will be determined at a later date.


Complaints should be submitted in writing to The Department of Continuing Medical Education at Nova Southeastern University Health Professions Division, 3200 S. University Drive--Rm 1518, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33328.
