This DSS is a component of the Prisoner health DSS. The Prisoner health DSS describes data about public and private prisons operating in Australia. It includes data on prison entrants, prisoners who visit a prison clinic or take repeat medication while in custody, prison clinic services and prison clinic staffing levels.

This DSS includes all prescribed medications administered on one day during the National Prisoner Health Census period and depot medications i.e. medications injected so absorption occurs over a prolonged period, whether or not they were administered on the census day. Routine household-type medications, such as paracetamol, taken on an as-needed basis are not included.

Collection methods:Help on this termInformation on all repeat medications administered to prisoners on a designated day in the National Prisoner Health Census reporting period is recorded on the Prisoners in Custody—Repeat Medications form by the treating health professional at the clinic visit. More than one medication category may be recorded.
