Evaluation report - CSC's Health Services: PS84-68/2017E-PDF

“According to section 86(1) of the Corrections and Conditional Release Act (CCRA), CSC is mandated to provide essential health care, and reasonable access to non-essential mental healthcare that will contribute to the inmate’s rehabilitation and successful reintegration into the community. Compared to the Canadian population, offenders demonstrate a higher prevalence of mental and physical health concerns. As well, CSC’s offender population is aging. CSC’s Health Services represent an important opportunity to address offenders’ diverse health care needs throughout the continuum of care, which includes: intake, incarceration, and pre-release and community supervision. The evaluation focuses on the relevance and performance of CSC’s mental, clinical, and public health services. Evaluation questions examine the following areas: relevancy of CSC’s health services, effectiveness and efficiency of the intake assessment process, offender access to care and services throughout incarceration, public health education and harm reduction, institutional mental health services, pre-release and community health services and the management and coordination of health services. Given the breadth and complexity of health services within CSC, the evaluation is organized into seven findings in focus for evaluation (FIFEs)"--Executive summary, p. vi.
