THE ACADEMY IS EXCITED TO WELCOME DR. CATHERINE CARTER-SNELL FOR SPECIAL MEMBER'S ONLY AFN WEBINAR
Documentation is a reality for all nurses but particularly important for forensic nurses. Not only does it reflect what was seen, said, and done, but it provides a record for review in legal proceedings in many cases. Documentation is also a valuable resource for research - giving us insight into trends, issues, and supporting evidence-informed practice.
In this session, we will discuss some of the key principles of documentation as they relate to forensic nurses. Examples of concepts to be discussed include standardized approaches to documentation, use of traumagrams, standardized terminology for our observations such as the BALD STEP guide to physical findings, invariable practice,
and necessary components to document for excited utterances.
This Webinar is open to all AFN Members! Looking forward to seeing you there!
