Development and Implementation of a Case Review Conference Model for Juveniles: A Structured Approach to Learning from Unsuccessful Probationers

Volume 76 Number 3
December 2012

The medical field routinely uses mortality and morbidity reviews (MMRs) to enhance medical education and improve patient care through the critical examination of case studies. The University of Cincinnati Corrections Institute modeled the structure and content of the Case Review Conference (CRC) from the MMR medical model to provide corrections professionals with an opportunity to identify individual service changes as well as system-based issues in a community-based setting. The authors describe the CRC process in detail, summarize the results from a pilot project, and provide recommendations for future applications.
