Forensic Nursing Part 2: Change Agent in Health Care
Forensic Nurses have changed the way health care meets the needs of victims and perpetrators of trauma and violence when they access the system. The changes that have occurred over the past two decades have positioned forensic nurses to be key experts in the fields of nursing, violence, trauma and crime. As the role of forensic nurses evolves, their role will continue to change health care nationally and internationally. Join us for a webinar to learn about the ways in which forensic nursing has made an impact on the Canadian health care system, the future challenges and opportunities for the role of the forensic nurse and the World Health Organization 2016 Global Plan of Action to strengthen the role of the health system in violence interventions.
