Abstract "This new edition is the premier resource by forensic nurses for forensic nurses. Working at the intersections of multiple health and legal systems, they practice nationally and globally, providing specialized nursing care and treatment that focuses on those who are affected by violence and trauma, be they individuals, families, communities, or populations. Forensic Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is the most current and comprehensive delineation of the practice and professional performance common to and expected of forensic RNs and APRNs. Topics covered include: forensic nursing's roles and practice domains, such as sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and medicolegal death investigation; educational preparation for forensic nursing; applying the nine provisions of the Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements in practice; such trends and issues as: interprofessional education, the challenges of digital technologies, the accessibility of forensic nursing services, and forensic nursing research. Updated competencies lend specificity to the publication's 19 standards statements. Each standard's set of competencies can be evidence of compliance with that standard. As a whole, these competencies can frame the evaluation of practice outcomes and goals of forensic nurses and delineate what is expected of their practice by their healthcare peers and others. Its scope of practice-the what, how, where, when, who, and why of their practice-is the context for applying these standards"--Publisher's description.
