2. State at least one best practice guideline for treatment of a patient who has experienced strangulation.

This webinar will be a dynamic, interactive, image-heavy presentation of common and not-so-common findings during pediatric sexual forensic exams.

Discussions will include evidence-based interpretation and documentation of findings.

Educational Objectives:

1. Review child sexual abuse prevalence and dynamics.

2. Increase knowledge about accurate diagnosis during child sexual assault exams, and appropriate categorization of the findings within the Joyce Adams Interpretation publication.

3. Gain tools for exam techniques that can help the examiner capture quality digital images.
