Information covered in this training will include:
Testifying in court is many times anxiety provoking for examiners. Preparation and knowing what to expect can go a long way in dispelling some of that anxiety. In this presentation, examples of answers to difficult questions that may be presented will be provided. A case study will also be presented and a mock testimony will be performed highlighting appropriate and potential testimony downfalls.
Consent for forensic exams is not implied and can be complicated when competency is questionable. Drug facilitation as well as cognitive impairment (alcohol consumption, cognitive disability, etc.) can blur guidelines and protocols. This presentation will cover some complicated consent situations and suggestions to handle concerns that may arise concerning consent.
Strangulation accounts for 10% of all violent deaths in the United States, yet many people that are strangled survive. Many survivors are assaulted during an incident of intimate partner violence or sexual assault. Assessment for strangulation-related injuries, accurate response to and anticipation of sequelea of those injuries, and accurate documentation is essential in the care of the strangulation survivor. This presentation will provide injuries associated with strangulation, discuss signs and symptoms that require immediate medical evaluation and observation, and through case studies provide examples of appropriate documentation.
