Individualizing Care: Providing Medical Forensic Exam Across All Skin Tones

In this webinar the presenters will discuss considerations for individualizing care when providing a comprehensive medical forensic exam. As forensic nurses, it is a prioritization to ensure that a patient-centered approach is taken when providing care. In order for this to happen the entire patient has to be acknowledged, this includes culturally specific needs the patient may have as well as variations in skin tones across patients seeking care. This interactive webinar will guide participants on acknowledging and addressing these needs during the exam in a trauma-informed, culturally specific manner.

Presenters: Chantel Hammond, MSN, RN, AFN-C, SANE-A, SANE-P
Angelita Olowu, BSN, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P
