VIRTUAL BOOT CAMP: Forensic Nursing Responses to the Epidemic of Strangulation (Save the Date)
April 21 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM$195.00
Recognition of strangulation injury and its sequelae has come a long way from a few short years ago when strangulation was considered just choking, to today where non-fatal strangulation ( NFS) is now recognized as a felony and life-threatening crime in 48 states. Like the risk and severity of non-fatal strangulation, the medical forensic examination of patients who have experienced this mechanism of injury can be misunderstood.
This course will provide learners with the state of the art knowledge necessary to understand forensic evidence collection, the neurobiology of trauma, the lethality associated with non-fatal strangulation, medical risks, and medical forensic examination components needed to successfully assess and treat patients who have experienced this type of assault. Fourteen Case Reviews will supplement the training points for continued learning.
Join the presenters as they discuss the important topic of non-fatal strangulation and learn the Clinical response as best practice for these examinations. Join your colleges for this exciting boot camp.
3 sessions 90 min. each.
