Increasing violence and litigation are rampant in our society. Every nurse must have a baseline concept of the prevalent types of abuse/maltreatment in order to provide compassionate and comprehensive care, as well as brace themselves for the inevitable exposure to the legal system (civil, criminal, human rights). Forensic nursing is an exploding and exciting sub-specialty of nursing. Many find this not only an interest, but a compelling method of holistic patient care. Acquiring a distinctive skill set based on evidence-based practice allows nurses to make valuable and unique contributions in and beyond the typical practice setting. The content presented in this one-day course will equip you to identify and intervene with abused/victimized patients, learn from valuable assessment tools, review various charting examples and take a close look at a plethora of photos and case studies. Very few nurses were trained in legal matters; therefore, this is a critical knowledge update that addresses current trends in risk management and application to practice in order to mitigate negative outcomes.
