In the spirit of collaboration in forensic medicine, a new forensic wiki has been launched. Anybody can contribute to the development of this resource - the aim of which is to provide peer reviewed (and so far as is possible) evidence-based forensic medicine and pathology educational materials.
In the first instance, content is requested on general topics such as;
- What is forensic medicine/ pathology?
- Post mortem changes
- Post mortem interval assessment
- Wounds and injuries, and
- Head injury
In order to provide the most up-to-date and accurate content, practitioners of forensic medicine/pathology are especially invited to contribute to the development of this wiki.
Images of deceased persons should not include any 'identifiable features' (images of faces/ heads with the eyes 'blacked out' is not considered ethically acceptable in this regard), and the use of alternative illustrations (including body mannequins) is to be encouraged.
