Written and edited by 40 practitioners in prison systems and public health from all over the USA, this critically acclaimed text comprehensively covers the medical issues specific to the correctional setting―essential, practical information not available in other books. It explores all major areas of correctional medicine, from intake to hospice care―including clinical management of diseases common among the incarcerated, ethical concerns, organization of health services delivery, patient-provider relations, legal issues, and more. The 2nd Edition delivers completely new sections on nursing and emergency services in the correctional setting, as well as new chapters on hepatitis C, geriatric care, end-of-life care, telemedicine, and other timely subjects.

REVIEW OF THE LAST EDITION
"A necessity for all health professionals working in correctional settings. I also recommend it for use in medical schools and schools of public health and health administration. The challenges described are so fascinating and the standards of clinical care and professional behavior presented are so high that the book will attract students to this important field of health care."―JAMA
