Program Implementation


If you’re interested in joining the TCN and building a local Transitions Clinic,

the TCN can provide the following services to help:

NEEDS ASSESSMENT

Each community is unique; there are varying rates of recidivism, disparate reentry services, and uneven access to primary care. The TCN works with potential partner sites to understand the site’s particular programmatic needs based on its existing resources.

TRAINING & TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Caring for patients recently released from prison requires a unique set of skills of which many healthcare professionals are unfamiliar. TCN members:

  • have access to our online training manual and tools for launching and sustaining a Transitions Clinic Program
  • receive training on team-based care and CHW integration into the medical team
  • attend online workshops focused on common clinical and technical issues

RELATIONSHIP BUILDING

Some cities have a plethora of reentry services, while others offer few options for returning prisoners. In many cases, existing programs are underutilized or misrepresented. Our national presence enables us to facilitate relationships that might otherwise be overlooked, allowing sites to leverage the TCN to the benefit of their patients.
