Articles of Note Child Abuse DV/IPV Elder Abuse/Neglect Sexual Assault

Articles of Note: June Edition

Here’s what I love–1.) this month’s Articles of Note is full of amazing stuff to choose from; and 2.) there are many forensic nurses (and subscribers to this site from both the US and Canada) among the authors of the articles listed this month. And one more thing about point #2: not all of those forensic nurses have PhDs. So for those of you who feel like you can’t write because you didn’t go to graduate school, I would like to point out that this isn’t true–the literature needs our PhD’d research colleagues, and *also* the expert clinicians, whatever their educational credentials, contributing to the science (see this editorial for a good example of what you might consider writing). So once again, it’s time for our monthly roundup of articles that have caught my attention. Remember, this is not an exhaustive list of what’s new in the literature, but it should give you a good place to start. Links lead to abstracts unless full-text is noted.
