Written by a range of experts in the field, Nursing in Criminal Justice Services takes the reader along the health and justice pathway, from initial patient contact with nurses in police stations, to nursing care in courts, through prison nursing services and finally into the work of the multi-disciplinary team in the community, where nurses work alongside the probation services. Importantly, the authors challenge some frequently held beliefs about people in criminal justice settings, where staff have to manage the competing priorities of providing care and ensuring security. They show how, at its best, this type of nursing can provide safe, compassionate care for vulnerable and often frightened people, leading to hugely improved outcomes for offenders and ultimately society as a whole. Contents include: Recovery and redemption Nursing in police custody Forensic nurse examiners: Caring for victims of sexual assault Caring in court Prison nursing On the out: Supporting offenders in the community Custodial caritas: Beyond rhetoric in caring and custody Caring for vulnerable people: Intellectual disability in the criminal justice system Governance and quality in criminal justice health services Learning opportunities from inquests Professional attitudes and behaviours
