Forensic Gynaecology

Over the past two decades there has been a transformation in our understanding of the notion of rape. Research has helped to reveal the alarming frequency of sexual coercion in women's lives and the various guises in which rape occurs. Current legal reforms have changed the way rape is defined and treated in law. The aim of the meeting is to raise awareness about the role rape plays in women's physical and mental health, to discuss management of the rape victim with the aim of promoting a high standard of care and a structured approach to the responsibilities of those undertaking rape examination. It is felt that training in these issues is important and so a training day covering only the basic issues has been arranged on day two.
