Institute for Addressing Strangulation (IFAS) Clinical Webinar Series on Strangulation

Event dates: 25 September, 09 October, 24 October, 07 November, 05 December

Venue: Zoom

Summary of event:        

IFAS has launched a series of webinars which will be delivered by expert speakers specifically targeted at clinicians.

The webinars will provide detailed insight into identifying and supporting patients who have experienced strangulation.

There is a strong link between non-fatal strangulation and domestic homicide and these clinical webinars will help lay out in detail:

  • The anatomy of the neck and the impact of strangulation
  • Signs and symptoms of strangulation
  • Clinical management
  • The impact on the brain
  • Risk assessment and support for survivors
  • Recording and presenting expert evidence.

The webinars will also include survivor testimonies of their experience of reporting and response from agencies, providing clinicians with a first-hand insight into the lived experience of those strangled and the prevalence and impact of this insidious crime.

The webinars will all start at 19:00 and consist of 45 minutes of presentation followed by 15 minutes for questions and discussion.

We would highly recommend registering for all five webinars so clinicians can build their understanding of strangulation but there is also the option of booking for webinars individually.

Price: £30 per webinar or £100 for all five
