FFLM Course in General Forensic Medicine – July 2022

We will be running our five day Course in General Forensic Medicine (accredited by Teesside University) from Monday 11 to Friday 15 July 2022.

The course is for newly appointed or prospective forensic physicians, nurses and paramedics and leads to the University Certificate in Postgraduate Professional Development (UCPPD) in General Forensic Medicine.

Due to the COVID pandemic, we have altered the way we deliver the course.

There will be two days of face to face teaching (on Monday and Tuesday) and the rest of the course will be delivered remotely. The face to face training will take place in London at the Royal College of Physicians.

Due to the current circumstances, we cannot guarantee that the course will be able to go ahead. If the course has to be postponed any fees paid will either be refunded or transferred to a future course.

The course covers the following five modules:

– Module 1: Role of the Healthcare Professional (HCP) working in a multidisciplinary team; Personal safety and conflict resolution; Consent, confidentiality and ethics; Safeguarding.

– Module 2: Fitness to detain, transfer and record-keeping; Fitness to interview and charge; Administering medication; Assessment of mental health and fitness to release.

– Module 3: Traffic medicine – procedures under the Road Traffic Acts; Substance use disorders; forensic science and sampling.

– Module 4: Documentation, interpretation and management of injuries; Management of alleged restraint injuries; HCP at the scene of death; Death in custody and the Independent Investigation of Deaths in Custody.

– Module 5: Statement writing; The Court system.

The course is assessed in two areas:
