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.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Examine sexual assault/strangulation cases and recognize the value of peer review and discussion.
- Identify normal and abnormal findings.
- Compare the techniques and resources utilized for each patient.
- Discuss implications for practice changes based on the case discussion.
