It can be frustrating when a term means something to one discipline yet has a different definition when used in another discipline. Thus, together with the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE), the Center for Nursing Excellence International (CFNEI) has released a glossary of terms used in sexual assault cases. The Multidiscipline Sexual Assault Glossary is a continuously updated searchable database compiled with the input of experts in several fields.
With this glossary, attorneys can ensure clear communication with jurors as well as experts consulted in the course of sexual assault cases. As the definitions are FBI-compliant, one can be confident in their veracity and clarity. The glossary will be available as a smartphone app in the future.
