About the webinar:

One criteria of the Barnahus is that a medical evaluation is carried out to ensure a victim’s right to health and to secure forensic evidence for investigative purposes. As part of its medical services, a Barnahus or similar setup should also provide treatment and referrals to specialists as integral parts of its service.

The 3-part webinar mini-series will explore the many considerations for meeting the medical evaluation criteria for Barnahus:

The part 1 of this series on Framework for medical standards featuring Stefan Rune, Consultant paediatrician at Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden takes places on 18 October 2018, 15:00 CEST. The recording of the part 1 is available here.

The second part of the mini-series looks into Physical abuse diagnostic work-up and decision-making, featuring Resmiye Oral, Professor of Paediatrics, Director of the Child Protection Program at the University of Iowa, USA. The recording of the part 2 is available here.

This third part on Sexual abuse diagnostic work-up and decision-making, featuring Andrea Goddard, Consultant paediatrician and Paedriatic Lead, The Havens Sexual Assault Referral Centre, Kings College Hospital, NHS Fundation Trust, UK. Childhub and PROMISE are looking forward to host you for this webinar!
