Course Description:
Making the case for expanded forensic healthcare & essentials of the non-fatal strangulation examination
This presentation will identify opportunities and rationale to consider in evolving the role of the experienced SANE to expanding clinical practice to patient populations with additional forensic health care needs. Considering the co-occurrence of physical & sexual violence, a response to those affected by IPV is a logical progression. With emerging research and focus on the occurrence of strangulation within intimate partner relationships, additional information on this lethal form of trauma will be included.

Because 80% of all strangulation patients will have no visible trauma, it is important to consider evidence collection and treatment in any case suspicious for strangulation. It is important that participants understand the variables in strangulation and why some patients will have visible physical findings or symptoms and others may not. The key is documentation based on the history and the head to toe examination. Updated tools and equipment will be available to demonstrate the proper documentation of this examination as well as allowing interactive practice for participants.

Objectives:
1. Identify clinical & community opportunities for expanding forensic nursing practice.
2. Discuss the rationale for identifying intimate partner violence (IPV) in patient populations.
3. Identify available assessment/screening tools for family violence & IPV.
4. Discuss the incidence and prevalence of non-fatal strangulation in survivors of sexual assault and IPV.
5. Critically analyze the physical & physiologic effects of strangulation.
6. Describe recommended courses of treatment and care for patients with a history of strangulation.
7. Demonstrate photographic and written documentation tools to utilize in cases of non-fatal strangulation.
