FORENSIC SCENARIOS AND EXAMINATIONS FOR NON-FORENSIC PATHOLOGISTS
This day course will show how to approach selected topics often seen in forensic scenarios, but which may be encountered in coronial cases referred for routine examination. The course aims to develop the skills and confidence of the attendees in conducting these autopsy examinations, as well as aid in the interpretation of the findings.
Who Should Attend?
Though aimed primarily at trainees and Consultants in their early years of practice, the course will act as a refresher for all Histopathologists engaged in autopsy practice.
Attendees will learn how best to approach cases of:
- vehicular-related trauma,
- bodies from water
- fire-related deaths,
- a decomposed body
- hanging and asphyxia,
- incised wounds (with emphasis upon cases of self-infliction),
- gunshot wounds (with emphasis upon cases of self-infliction), and
- basic interpretation of findings on Post-Mortem CT examinations.
Please note that we may also run a Northern meeting in the next six months - TBC
