MSPGH Seminar: 20th Jul 2016 – What gets counted gets done: Development and validation of a system for routine monitoring of deaths after release from prison

12.30-1.30pm, Wed 20th July 2016
Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Professor Stuart Kinner, Head, Justice Health Research Program, Griffith Criminology Institute & Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University; and Honorary Associate Professor, Melbourne School of Population & Global Health, The University of Melbourne

People released from prison are at markedly increased risk of death.  However, despite well-established systems for monitoring deaths in custody in Australia and elsewhere, no
country has yet established a system for routine monitoring of mortality in people recently released from prison.  In this presentation, Stuart will describe the development and validation of a system for routinely monitoring mortality in people recently released from prison, and present national estimates of mortality within 28 days and 365 days of prison release, over the period 2000 to 2013. The presentation will conclude with discussion of how routine surveillance of mortality in this population can complement targeted research.
