Pediatric Strangulation Case Review and Assessment

A brand new resource is now available from IAFN: Pediatric Strangulation Case Review and Assessment. Although it’s more expensive than items I normally post, it’s such a fantastic educational opportunity, it’s hard to pass this one up. The cost is $199 for 20 CEUs (IAFN members can obtain a code for $50 off). There are also institutional access options available. From the website:

IAFN Pediatric Strangulation Case Review and Assessment is an accredited e-learning module developed by the International Association of Forensic Nurses. It contains 29 cases of living pediatric strangulation patients evaluated and treated in the medical setting, presented in conjunction with evidence-based knowledge on pediatric strangulation evaluation and treatment. 

Assess your knowledge acquisition through review of:

  • Definitions and terminology
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Manner and associated signs & symptoms
  • CE post-testing: 20 credits
