The Forensic Process for Nurses
The course aims to prepare you for the possibility of forensic involvement in animal abuse and welfare cases, across the two main strands of exposure: formal requests for assistance from animal investigative agencies and authorities, and concerns generated during routine working in the practice.
This unique interactive course is available for a six-week period, to allow you to complete the material at your own pace. Featuring real-life case examples, you will be given the opportunity to create your own forensic casefile whilst following a welfare investigation from start to finish. Including downloadable forms and templates, high-quality instructive videos, alongside practical guidance for identifying non-accidental injuries, the Forensic Process course is an invaluable aid, which is as engaging as it is informative.
The following modules are covered:
• Welfare Concerns
• Forensic Examination
• Suffering and Seizure
• Forensic Disciplines
• Scene Examination
• In-Practice Concerns
• External Referrals
• Assessing Findings (clinical and forensic).
