The first in a three part series where delegates will learn how serious stabbing injuries are investigated and treated, and to look at some strategies for prevention. 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.
Delegates will learn about current best practice in investigating and treating serious stab wounds based on a post mortem of a fatal stabbing, and experts will talk about innovative alternatives to post-mortem examinations, and about potential interventions at 'teachable moments' to prevent further deaths.
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.
A CPD certificate with CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
