We have launched a series of webinars which will be delivered by expert speakers including Prof Cath White specifically targeted at clinicians.
The webinars will provide detailed insight into identifying and supporting patients who have experienced strangulation.
There is a strong link between non-fatal strangulation and domestic homicide and these clinical webinars will help lay out in detail:
- The anatomy of the neck and the impact of strangulation
- Signs and symptoms of strangulation
- Clinical management
- The impact on the brain
- Risk assessment and support for survivors
- Recording and presenting expert evidence.
The webinars will also include survivor testimonies of their experience of reporting and response from agencies, providing clinicians with a first-hand insight into the lived experience of those strangled and the prevalence and impact of this insidious crime.
The webinars will consist of 45 minutes of presentation followed by an opportunity for clinicians to ask follow-up questions and discuss.
The programme can be viewed below:
- Strangulation & Suffocation in Clinical Practice– 25th Sept, 7pm- 8pm
- Clinical Presentation– 9th Oct, 7pm- 8pm
