Free Webinar – A Conversation on Recently Updated FFLM Documents

Over the month of June, the FFLM published the following eleven documents – it really was a bumper month!

  • Safe and Secure Handling and Supply of Medicines in Sexual Assault Services for Adults and Children
  • Proforma – Paediatric Forensic Medical Examination
  • Guidance for best practice for the management of intimate images which may become evidence in court
  • Proforma – Fitness for detention and interview
  • Proforma – Mental Health Act Assessment
  • Recommended Equipment for Obtaining Forensic Samples from Complainants and Suspects
  • Recommendations for Collecting Hair Samples for Toxicology
  • Recommendations for the Collection of Forensic Specimens from Complainants and Suspects
  • Recommendations for the Collection of Forensic Specimens from Complainants and Suspects – the evidence
  • Recommendations for Collecting Nail Clippings for Toxicology
  • Blood Samples in Hospital for Unconscious/Incapacitated Patients

We thought it would be useful for members to have a chance to speak with the authors of the documents: Dr Bernadette Butler, Dr Sheila Paul, Dr Margaret Stark, Dr Marie-Elle Vooijs, and Prof Ian Wall.

This webinar will be held on Thursday 16 July 2020 at 19:00 and  is free for Members (Affiliates, Associates, Fellows, Licentiates and Members) to attend. For Non-members the webinar costs £30.

Please email forensic.medicine@fflm.ac.uk to register. Non-members can book below.

The authors are happy to answer any questions you might have on the documents. We ask you to please send any questions to forensic.medicine@fflm.ac.uk as soon as possible for the authors to consider.
