DescriptionThis Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health Service study into a best practice model of holistic health service delivery for Aboriginal inmates of the ACT Alexander Maconochie Centre, which is due to open in 2008, has highlighted the limited national and international literature on Aboriginal and Indigenous prison health. There is also a lack of information about effective interventions to improve health outcomes, preventive health strategies, and managing the cycle of incarceration. The proposed Holistic Health Care Prison Model described in the report makes a significant contribution to this area of research. The model provides holistic care during incarceration and planning for release, post-release health service coordination, and family and community reintegration strategies. It is hoped that the model will be regarded as a template for Aboriginal prison health models nationally. (Executive summary, edited.)
