Palliative care for prisoners

(p.200) Chapter 21 Palliative care for prisoners
Death, Dying, and Social Differences

Mary Turner

Sheila Payne

Oxford University Press

This chapter suggests that the prison population as a whole has to contend with multiple and severe disadvantages in terms of health, education, ageing, ethnicity, and disability compared with the rest of the population. It argues that consequently the needs of dying prisoners (and their families) for supportive and palliative care can be far greater than for other patients.
