Conference Brochure

Join fellow law enforcement personnel, physicians, prosecutors, nurses,
victim advocates, crisis workers, criminalists, crime scene investigators,
forensic examiners, EMS personnel, and judges for this cutting-edge
clinical forensic conference. We will focus on a broad array of emerging
forensic issues, including sexual assault, interpersonal violence, ballistics,
strangulation, and child and elder abuse in both urban and rural

This year’s conference is designed to provide an interactive joint educational
opportunity and promising practices when working with victims of violence.
Topics will include working with multidisciplinary teams and learning
to consider all of the forensic implications on the street, in health care
settings, and in the courtroom. Violence is a health care crisis, so we will
focus on approaching clinical forensic issues in a collaborative, coordinated,
compassionate, competent, caring, victim-centered process.
