Sexual Assault and Medical Forensic Examination Resources

For attorneys with questions about the appropriate procedures for conducting a sexual assault examination or a medical forensic examination, there is a new resource available here. The page includes links to national protocols and standards of practice that have been developed by the Department of Justice and other professional organizations.

Attorneys can access training on this topic by following the link to free recorded webinars. The resource page also contains information about how to access current scientific articles on this topic and a link to case law compiled by the North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys. For assistance with understanding medical records and reports, the page has links to two online dictionaries that define abbreviations and medical terminology commonly found in medical records.
