Summary

It is known that prisoners generally have poor health and complex health needs that are reflected in the number and types of medications they take. Less is known about how this medication use compares with people in the general community. This bulletin uses data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare's National Prisoner Health Data Collection and the Australian Bureau of Statistic's National Health Survey to compare medications taken by prisoners with people in the general community. Contextual information from a focus group of prison health professionals is used to discuss some of the differences between prescribing in a prison and in the general community.
