Unfortunately, forensic nurses have historically practiced in “silos” and not participated in peer review as part of their practice within their programs and communities. Case, or Peer review, has considerable potential and is a key component of modern quality assurance and patient satisfaction. In the forensic world, case review ensures that the evidence collected, and injuries identified are accurate before going to court for a criminal or civil trial.

The focus of this session will be on sexual assault/ strangulation cases. Presenters will highlight several cases from a variety of programs and discuss best practices. The cases will be presented to demonstrate the process of peer review and effective case discussion with input from all. 

Trigger Warning: graphic photographs.
