The ways in which forensic nurses and other medical providers working with victims of violent crime conduct themselves, both with patients and in the courtroom, can have lasting effects on individual and community practice. Using examples from the media, trial transcripts and case law, this session will look at ethical challenges that arise in forensic nursing practice and how those challenges impact both patient care and testimony at trial. Participants should expect a lively, interactive discussion with an emphasis placed on practical, rather than theoretical, application.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Students will learn how ethics impact practice and court testimony.
- Students will learn about ethical issues currently playing out in the media and through trial transcripts and case law to see their implications for forensic nursing practice.
- Students will review IAFN’s Vision of Ethical Practice and other practice models as potential guidance for developing a sufficient framework to guide a forensic examiner program’s practice.
