520 1  ""Drs. Muscari and Brown have synthesized the key 
       information on forensic pediatrics and produced a `must 
       read' text that needs to be on every person's bookshelf."-
       -Ann Wolbert Burgess, DNSc, APRN, BC Professor of 
       Psychiatric Nursing, Boston College" "Health care 
       practitioners frequently work with victims of child abuse,
       sexual assault, and juvenile offenders, but often lack the
       education and resources they need to deal with the 
       everyday forensic issues of pediatric practice. This quick
       guide provides current information that assists pediatric 
       practitioners with the prevention, identification, and 
       management of pediatric victims and offenders." "The book 
       describes the general principles of forensics and their 
       use in pediatric practice, including a discussion of the 
       cycle, continuum, and cultural aspects of violence. It 
       also serves as a guide to conducting the forensic 
       assessment and recording the legal documentation, 
       collecting evidence, navigating the criminal and family 
       justice systems, and obtaining expert witness testimony. 
       The authors clearly define the role of the pediatric 
       provider working with children who witness violence at 
       home, in the community, and in the media." "Practicing 
       emergency room nurses, pediatric critical care nurses, 
       nurse practitioners, and student practitioners will find 
       this book to be an essential reference guide for managing 
       and understanding pediatric forensics."--BOOK JACKET.
