International Association of Forensic Nurses: Non-Fatal Strangulation Documentation Toolkit

The Strangulation Toolkit provides the forensic nurse with detailed guidance on assessment techniques, documentation, and evidence collection for this patient population. This toolkit also provides documents such as discharge instructions and sample policies that can be adjusted to best suit your institution and your forensic practice.

The 2020 Intimate Partner Violence Nurse Examiner Education Guidelines are now available!

With updated research and citations, these evidence-based guidelines summarize knowledge, practice, and collaboration issues involved in providing comprehensive medical forensic examination of the patient who has experienced intimate partner violence or abuse.

The lastest issue of the Journal of Forensic Nursing is now available!

All regular members receive unlimited free access as part of their membership. You can now access the January/March 2020 issue.
