We spent the day talking about testimony. One of the things we discussed was that sometimes the experience looks a lot more like Night Court than Law and Order. One of my new favorite Tumblrs has a similar take on the difference between the common perception of court and the reality of court. Thank you, [...]
This weekend gave us a glimpse of spring here in the DC area, so I spent as much time as possible outside. However, I am prepping for a quick trip to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area (hope to some of you there–we’ll be talking about testimony, one of my favorite subjects!), so I wasn’t entirely unplugged. [...]
I will be doing a lunchtime SANE-A mini-prep course for IAFN’s next webinar. It will be held September 27th from 12-1:30 pm and will cost $15 ($30 for non-members), which also nets you one CEU. It’s important to note that this session will only concentrate on the two areas of the exam that have traditionally [...]
How is it possible I went most of the summer without posting one of these? Embarrassing. What follows is what’s caught my eye from the August/September/October journals (with a couple of late July articles tossed in for good measure). As always, this is not an exhaustive list, but I do have to say, it’s a pretty [...]
As promised, a clinical guide on issues related to testimony. Please let me know if I have left something out and it can be added in. Every attempt will be made to update this guide on a regular basis.
Since the webinar I’ve had many questions about some of my go-to resources and general tips about testifying. So here are some of the things I think are important about testimony.

We presented the Ethical and Effective Testimony webinar the other morning at 3am, Korea time day; it’s now archived on the SAFEta site. The handouts are also available. Stay tuned–the next FHO clinical guide will be one on court testimony.
I will be doing a webinar on Ethical and Effective Testimony (along with AEQ Director, Jennifer Long) for SAFEta Source. The session will be held April 10th from 2-3:30pm ET and is free. You can register here. This is one of my all time favorite topics to discuss, so hopefully we’ll be seeing many of [...]
I am consulting on a couple cases right now, so testimony is on my mind. Today I am going to post my Expert Witness’ Bill of Rights. By all means, please do add to this if you come up with any I have missed. Also remember, this is opinion and opinion only. Just because I [...]
Oh, I do love a good expert witness webinar. And IAFN and AALNC are offering a joint one Auguts 17th at 3pm ET, The Nurse Expert Witness: The Basics and Beyond (plus they’re offering CEUs). Registration’s not yet open for this event, but it’s worth getting on your calendar, and I will update the page [...]
