The goal of this program is to educate the attendees as to the mechanisms of injury in children and adults, and their sequelae. Focus will be on the common modalities of injuries, as well as classic patterned injuries seen in both forensic pathology and forensic odontology. The expected outcomes of these injuries and long terms effects will be discussed. Lessons from the viewpoints of dentistry and pathology will be shared with the mutual objective being the earliest possible intervention and interruption of harm to our patients, and our friends and families.
- Participants will learn to recognize and differentiate among accidental, incidental and intentional injuries.
- Participants will receive guidance on mandatory reporting, and source of injury investigation when necessary.
- Participants will learn to recognize the less obvious indications of violence and abuse, both acute and chronic. Child, adult, elder and intimate partner cases will be discussed.
