Jiang Long – Exploration and Preparation of Tele-medicine Services Focused on Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders in Malaysian Prisons Using the EPIS Implementation Science Framework
janvier 23 @ 1:00 - 2:00
People who experience incarceration (i.e., prisoners) have suboptimal health, access to healthcare services and health outcomes than the general population. Psychiatric and substance use disorders (PSUDs), in particular, are prevalent among prison populations, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). However, treatment capacity of PSUDs in prisons is inadequate in the countries due to various factors, including low screening, diagnosis and treatment, suboptimal funding, prisons being largely inaccessible to expert treatment providers and data to influence policy, among other reasons. Though screening, evaluation and treatment of PSUDs is an evidence-based practice, innovative tools like tele-medicine can support this EBP. Tele-medicine can contribute positively to mental health in prisons and its use has been broadly integrated into health service delivery globally, especially in the context of COVID-19.
Against this background, Jiang LONG, a psychiatrist researcher from Shanghai Jiao Tong Univerisy, Yale University and the University of Malaya, will talk about his on-going project ‘Exploration and Preparation of Tele-medicine Services Focused on Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders in Malaysian Prisons Using the EPIS Implementation Science Framework’ and his understanding about Implementation Science.
