FORENSIC NURSES NEWS


Forensic expertise enhances investigations
Colin Harris, a long standing member of IAFN has created a new niche for forensic nurses in Workplace Safety. His article in the Oct/Dec 2013 of the JFN entitled Occupational Injury and Fatality Investigations: The Application of Forensic Nursing Science identified a gap between medical and forensic medical knowledge. This article also provided readers with an opportunity for Continuing Education. You can also read about his WorkSafe Profile, reproduced with the permission of the WorkSafeBC here.

International Conference on Forensic Nursing Science and Practice
Back by popular demand are the Sexual Assault Clinical Skills Labs being offered for an additional fee of $150. These labs are limited to the first 40 registrants so don't delay! These labs are designed for already trained sexual assault nurse/forensic examiners (SANE/SAFEs) who seek training in the performance of speculum examinations or precepted adult/adolescent sexual assault examinations. Five students will be paired with an experienced preceptor and gynecological teaching associate (GTA) to practice performing an external genital assessment, a speculum examination, urinary catheter technique for hymen visualization, culture collection, and sexual assault evidence recovery.
