This comprehensive book covers the care of victims of sexual and domestic violence. Containing much practical advice - including writing legal reports and court skills, and issues of consent and capacity - the content highlights throughout the need to provide good-quality care to victims, not just for successful prosecutions but, more importantly, for the sake of the victim's mental and physical health. There are chapters on important topics such as child sex exploitation, female genital mutilation, male victims, training, and psychological issues. The content covers the syllabi for DFCASA, MFFLM(SOM) Part 2 and the RCOG ATSM in forensic gynaecology. This book is recommended for gynaecologists, sexual health doctors and nurses, genitourinary medicine doctors and nurses, emergency medicine doctors and nurses, midwives, counsellors and psychologists who work with victims, paediatricians, forensic doctors and nurses, specialist police officers and lawyers, and those working in sexual assault referral centres and independent sexual violence advisers.
