What was in the media?

Forensic medicine, pathology & science in the media has been examined by medical students taking a Student Selected Component (SSC). This resource illustrates the media items selected for discussion.
Richard Jones's insight:

One of the new features of our SSC in forensic pathology this year was an exploration of 'what's in the media?'.

 

This involved students seeking out articles/ media of interest to discuss in small groups, with expert facilitation by a forensic pathologist.

 

Opportunities were created to explore aspects of forensic medicine that could not be accommodated in a small-scale SSC-setting, including international aspects of death investigation, quality in death investigation, and what happens when things go wrong in those investigations, and the protection of the vulnerable from injury and death.

 

I thought it was a stimulating addition to the SSC, and look forward to continuing with it next year!

Forensic Toxicology - Drugs and Chemicals

Forensic Toxicology - Drugs and Chemicals | Forensic medicine & pathology resources | Scoop.it

Forensic Toxicology - Drugs and Chemicals.

Richard Jones's insight:

 

Drug-related deaths raise issues of risk-taking in the young, and social disadvantage/ deprivation which are not covered well in general medical undergraduate courses.

 

This online review will take you through the forensic aspects of illicit drug abuse, and the post mortem findings in such cases, including the microscopic findings in injected drugs of abuse.

Deaths from vagal inhibition. [Lancet. 1949] - PubMed - NCBI

Keith Simpson. Deaths from vagal inhibition. Lancet 1949; 1(6553):558-560

Richard Jones's insight:

 

This is a seminal paper from Simpson on a proposed mechanism of death following pressure to the neck. Could it be that those dying after a mild stimulus have a a predisposition to arryhtmia due to an abnormality of the cervical baroreceptors/ carotid sinus apparatus, or have they got an underlying channelopathy? Is it emotion plus arrhythmia?

Forensic medicine and pathology resources on the internet

Finding reliable medical educational resources on the internet can be challenging, and this applies to forensic medicine and pathology.

This article provides a convenient starting point for freely available resources created, and curated, by a practicing forensic pathologist.
Richard Jones's insight:

 

The educational resources that I have been putting together to support teaching and learning in forensic medicine and pathology over the years are scattered around the web, so I thought it was about time to pull them together for 'ease of reference'!

Richard Jones's curator insight, May 23, 2014 4:14 AM

Forensic medicine is an exciting area of medicine which, whilst not considered a 'core' undergraduate subject in England and Wales medical schools, is relevant to everything that doctors do, and your general medical and surgical teaching and learning.

 

As with all internet-based resources, the sheer volume of forensic-related materials available can be overwhelming. This Storify article collects resources which will complement your teaching and learning whilst studying medicine at Cardiff University (and beyond). Some of the resources will be more relevant in your early years, whilst others will be of increasing relevance when you become more experienced at clinical medicine.

 

These internet-based resources are also supplemented by a collection of themed resources on your year page on Learning Central, including an eLearning module on wounds and injuries, which will be of relevance when undertaking placements in emergency medicine. In this module you will learn how to recognise the differences between injuries caused by blunt force trauma, as opposed to sharp force trauma, and will learn about different patterns of injury from falls, road traffic collisions, and assault, including in patients who might be vulnerable through extremes of age, lifestyle, or their personal circumstances.

Revise the anatomy of the neck via BioDigital Human

Revise the anatomy of the neck via BioDigital Human | Forensic medicine & pathology resources | Scoop.it
The BioDigital Human is a virtual 3D body that brings to life thousands of medically accurate anatomy objects and health conditions in an interactive Web-based platform
Richard Jones's insight:

 

This excellent 3D anatomy software, freely available to use online, enables the user to interact with a detailed anatomical model, highlight - or remove - structures, and obtain anatomical views difficult to find in textbooks. The social media features are a real bonus, and the user can embed their creations in websites etc, or share them via Facebook or Twitter.

 

Follow the link to a model illustrating the muscles of the anterior neck on one side, and exposure of the deeper structures on the other side, to simulate a forensic dissection of the neck, to look for evidence of the application of pressure to the neck during an assault, for example.

 

(You will need to use a Web GL enabled browser - the desktop Chrome and Firefox browsers work well).

This 3D anatomical model has been created to help you visualise, and revise, anatomical structures in the neck that can be injured when pressure has been applied to the neck during an assault. It supplements your teaching on the pathology of trauma, and domestic and intimate partner violence.

Dr. Larry Weed discussing the problem-oriented medical record and clinical decision-making. He covers SOAP, medical thinking, and medical education.
Richard Jones's insight:

This is a wonderful lecture on the importance of the medical record. Yes, it is old, and in black and white, but the topic holds true today, and is well worth watching!

House of Commons Select Committee - Science and Technology (Forensic Science Service closure follow-up)

House of Commons Select Committee - Science and Technology (Forensic Science Service closure follow-up) | Forensic medicine & pathology resources | Scoop.it
Richard Jones's insight:

 

Jeremy Browne MP has great difficulty explaining whether the Government has a strategy for the future of forensic science - my take on his evidence is that there is none, save for devolving all responsibility for the provision of forensic science services in England and Wales to private providers. What effect this will have on the future investment of forensic sciences remains to be seen.
