The Medical-Public Defender Partnership -- How to Create a Medical-Legal Partnership Focused on the Criminal Legal Needs of Justice-Involved Patients
In this fourth installment of NCMLP's “Bringing lawyers onto the health center care team to promote patient & community health” Webinar Series, medical-legal partnership (MLP) practitioners in Rhode Island will discuss a unique medical-public defender partnership. Since its founding in the early 1990s, the MLP approach has evolved to incorporate criminal legal in addition to civil legal needs. One of the first MLPs focused on criminal legal needs emerged in Rhode Island, where health centers have partnered with the Rhode Island Public Defender's Office to collaborate around preserving their shared clients'/patients' health. Panelists will highlight best practices and lessons learned, and provide practical tools, such as customized letter templates highlighting the health consequences of incarceration, that have been integral to this partnership and can be used by other MLPs in both urban and rural settings.
