It was really an interesting lecture. Very new and full of in-depth information. I had a great time in listening on this topic, and that too from Dr. Rakesh Gorea sir. It was much appreciated.
Forensic nursing involves the integration of the healthcare system and the criminal justice system. Forensic nurses, apart from regular medical expertise, are trained in skills pertaining to the legal system, like injury identification, evaluation, and documentation.
They provide specialized care and facilities to victims of crimes like assault and trauma. After understanding the patient’s medical requirements, a forensic nurse provides complete mental support to them and thereafter collects evidence in consultation with legal authorities and, if required, provides medical testimony in court.
In this webinar on “Introduction & Development of Forensic Nursing”, the speaker will focus on the evolution of forensic nursing, major contributors to this field, the role forensic nursing experts play in handling victims, forensic healthcare education, and the development of forensic nursing practice in India.
