Suicide Investigation Webinar

Suicide Investigation: Methods, Notes and More is part of the 2012 International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) Webinar series. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, July 10, 2012 (11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.).

Course description: Suicide is a prevalent health care problem. It is not until we pay attention to their methods of choice, the notes they leave behind and the psychosocial aspects that lead up to successful suicides are we then able to develop and implement healthcare interventions to try to intervene. This presentation will provide information regarding suicides which have been investigated by Forensic Nurse Death Investigators involving many methods, different types of notes left behind, staging behavior and a variety of motives. The goal of this presentation is to increase the knowledge of suicide investigation to forensic nurses so that they may be better prepared to develop and implement healthcare interventions. Case studies will be presented.

The featured speaker is Bobbi Jo O'Neal, a Registered Nurse and Board Certified Medicolegal Death Investigator with the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators and the Chief Deputy Coroner for the Charleston County Coroner’s Office in Charleston, South Carolina.
