The Clinical Forensic and Legal Medicine section are hosting an exciting full day meeting on the Forensics of Stabbing. This meeting will bring together health professionals, legal experts and those working in the field of forensic medicine to promote an understanding of the investigation, management and prevention of stabbing injuries.

Chief Superintendent Martin Brunning, head of Major Crime Unit for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire constabularies will start the day by explaining how the police investigate a stabbing incident using examples from a real stabbing fatality. Attendees will hear how the accident and emergency departments work together to respond to a stabbing crime, and the role that forensic pathologists play in the investigation. Finally, industry experts will talk about an innovative alternative to post-mortem examinations, and about potential interventions at 'teachable moments' to prevent further deaths. The key learning objectives for this meeting will be as follows:

• Delegates will understand the way the police investigate stabbing incidents
• Delegates will know current practice in assessing and treating stab injuries in accident and emergency departments
• Delegates will hear about new techniques for visualising injuries
• Delegates will learn about the interventions which could occur at 'teachable moments' to prevent further stabbing

This meeting is aimed at forensic physicians and pathologists, radiologists, accident and emergency doctors, public health doctors lawyers and those with an interest in the Forensics of Stabbing. This awareness raising event will be hugely informative with ample opportunity for audience participation and discussion.
