Domestic violence workshop
The first day of IAFS 2017 contained a workshop on domestic violence attended by professionals from around the world. Presentations were made about the extent of the problem, the nature of injuries sustained and its effects upon children. The psychological damage done to children is enormous and costs the community through failure, inability to find jobs and crime. There is a definite role for forensic nurses in the evaluation of these cases; a role that needs further examination worldwide.
