Abstract

This participatory action research study aims to identify and explore the health concerns of male prisoners and to work with them, as expert partners, in suggesting ways to address these concerns. This project stems from the desire to improve delivery of nurse led health services within prisons, and to ensure that these services are in line with prisoner's self-identified health needs. The team feel it is important that the patient has a voice in shaping the delivery of nursing practice within the prison.
