About the Workshop
Occupational injuries and domestic violence share an important similarity for medical and legal interpreters: They both require med-legal reports to be generated in order to establish facts in civil or criminal legal cases.
In this 3-hour interactive lecture, the presenters will explain, in Spanish, standard med-legal terminology related to:
- Occupational injuries with an emphasis on back and upper and lower extremity injuries. Also includes the clinical examination of an injured worker.
- Forensic medicine with an emphasis on the classification and assessment of domestic violence injuries.
– Study materials will be provided to participants
– Language Specific: Spanish
