Principles of Forensic Medicine is a concise, practical guide for anyone working in the field of forensic medicine. Frontline police surgeons, forensic physicians, forensic medical officers and forensic medical examiners will find this book invaluable in defining good practice, as viewed by a senior police surgeon responsible for establishing one of the leading training courses in the UK. Additionally, those involved less directly with police custodial or forensic assessment, especially those working purely in child or adult sexual abuse, will benefit from the wealth of information contained in this book. Dr Robinson has placed special emphasis on the importance of communication, consent, confidentiality, record keeping, statement and report writing. His text is fully referenced and provides an immediate source of precedent and vital information for any situation concerning patients in police custody or individuals for whom forensic assessment is required.
