A useful research resource and handy reference, this book discusses the many important ethical and legal issues that arise in the delivery of health care to prisoners at correctional facilities. It references national standards of professional practice as well as the advice of recognized experts. • Clearly lays out the ethical issues in role conflicts or difficult policy questions in correctional health care management • Makes the argument that while correctional and medical care professionals have their own goals, policies, and practices in the correctional environment, a willingness to accommodate the key principles and needs of the other party benefits both disciplines • Investigates the central theme of what is right and what is wrong, by using ethical principles, court decisions, and accepted national standards as a guide • Provides an index designed to facilitate the book's use as a quick and ready reference
