Summary:Prisoners are more ill than their civilian counterparts, with higher levels of addictions, mental illness, infectious diseases and dental health problems. They are intense users of precribed medications - at least while they are in custodial care. This publication brings together the experiences of 18 health professionals. Each has some experience in working with prisoner populations and each has a particular perspective on the impacts that the custodial environment has on professional practice. This publication opens opportunities for a broader appreciation of safer prescribing of medications. <engl.>
