Call for Abstracts: Medical Ethics and the Criminal Justice System

Call for Abstracts: Medical Ethics and the Criminal Justice System

Forensic Medicine Conference 2015,

26 March 2015 London, United Kingdom

The British Medical Association's Forensic Medicine Committee is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a conference on Medical Ethics and the Criminal Justice System on 26th March 2015 at BMA House in London (CPD applied for). The conference will showcase research into ethical areas of study that is of relevance to healthcare professionals working within environments such as prisons, detention centres, police custody suites, forensic psychiatric units, sexual assault referral centres (SARCs), the courts and all other secure environments.

The conference will provide a forum for both clinicians and academics to present research findings, innovative methods and support systems and educational programmes that highlight the specific health vulnerabilities of patients within these environments. Common themes arise particularly around mental health and addiction problems as well as issues concerning patient safety and the impact that this has on the criminal justice system. This conference is particularly timely, given the pending transfer of the commissioning of clinical forensic medicine within police custody suites and SARCs from the Home Office to the NHS.

The friendly and informal conference environment will promote networking across and within the various specialist areas as well as an exchange of experience and information. It will also see the launch of the BMA Medical Ethics in Clinical Forensic Medicine toolkit, a handy yet comprehensive resource that will provide practical on-the-job guidance for forensic physicians and sexual offence examiners.

Both UK and overseas-based delegates are welcome and can register interest to attend or submit an abstract. The deadline for abstracts is 30 October 2014.
