Webinar Clinical and Legal Issues for Corrections After the Dobbs Decision
December 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturned nearly 50 years of legal precedent, ruling that there is no constitutional right to abortion, giving states full authority to regulate abortion care. How will this change in the legal status of abortion impact correctional facilities? This webinar will review potential clinical and legal implications for correctional facilities. We will discuss how state abortion restrictions may affect not only abortion access for people in custody, but also miscarriage and other pregnancy care that correctional facilities housing pregnant females must provide, including compliance with NCCHC standards. $59 / 1 hour of CE – ACCME, ANCC, APA, CCHP, and General.
