 2017 Conference Theme:  Contemporary Challenges, Opportunities, and Collaborations

Nurses and other health care professionals practicing at the interface of the health and criminal justice systems are faced with daily challenges unique to their roles, the clientele they work with, and the environments in which they practice. The first national conference focusing on nurses working in the forensic milieu was hosted by the College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan and the Regional Psychiatric Centre, Correctional Service Canada in 1989, and has been held biennially since then. We are pleased to host the 15th anniversary of the Custody and Caring Conference in 2017, and recognize that by highlighting contemporary challenges, opportunities and collaborations, best practices are promoted
