MedLine Citation:
PMID:  18586208     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This research demonstrates that forensic physicians in the United Kingdom (UK) who have not received academically approved introductory training in custodial medicine are failing to recognise adverse events in relation to patient safety and are missing forensic evidence. A model for future mandatory introductory training of forensic physicians is suggested.
