Strangulation is one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence: unconsciousness may occur within seconds and death within minutes. One study showed that “the odds of becoming an attempted homicide increased by about seven-fold for women who had been strangled by their partner” (Journal of Emergency Medicine, 2008). This 2 day course is aimed at forensic medical practitioners, forensic nurses, police officers, legal officers including prosecutors, defence lawyers, coroners and legal assistants and non-governmental organisations. Attendees of this course will learn how to: identify the signs and symptoms of near-fatal strangulation cases; understand and recognize the anatomy and medical aspects of surviving and non-surviving victims; investigate and document cases for prosecution; prosecute cases, including using experts in court; and, most importantly, enhance victim safety through trauma-informed advocacy services.
