Job Summary:

The Criminal Justice Coordinated Transitions of Care (CJC-TraC) project is a federally funded research study that aims to test a novel strategy for supporting incarcerated adults living with HIV, Hepatitis C, and/or Substance Use Disorder as they transition their health care from a prison to a community setting upon release. The research team at the University of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Department of Corrections is actively recruiting a full time nurse case manager to deliver the intervention according to the study protocol. The goal of the intervention is to successfully link people to an outpatient health care appointment within 30 days of being released from prison. The core activities of this position will be focused on building trust and helping participants improve their health system navigation skills, by anticipating and developing strategies to overcome barriers to care during the re-entry period. The intervention involves both in-person and telehealth encounters with incarcerated participants; the position will therefore be primarily based on-site in Wisconsin Department of Corrections facilities with travel between several correctional facilities required.

*Work with adults in prison and after release via phone, virtually, or in-person as possible and appropriate
*Work closely with the Department of Corrections staff to understand medical history and treatment plan and needs prior to client's release from prison
*Connect with clients to assess health history and current health status
*Deliver clinical support to clients with HIV, Hepatitis C, and/or Substance Use Disorder
*Identify gaps or barriers in treatment plans, both before and after returning to the community
*Provide patient education to assist with understanding and effective engagement with health care systems and providers
*Make referrals/connections to outside organizations and resources
*Prior to the client releasing from prison, collaborate with specialists, physicians, community supervision, and medical/clinical staff to connect patients with the necessary care and resources after release from prison

Our research group recognizes the strength that results from a diverse team, and applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in medicine and academia are encouraged to apply.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
