Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2022) | Viewed by 22996
Interests: forensic pathology; medical liability; insurance medicine; medical ethics
The experts in forensic and legal medicine have nowadays expanded their fields of interest, gaining a new professional relevance, particularly in those countries where they work inside.
The aim of this Special Issue is to discuss and offer an update regarding the different issues in forensic and legal medicine (forensic pathology, toxicology, anthropology, entomology, personal damage evaluation, insurance medicine, clinical risk management, medical liability and medical ethics), thus highlighting the most challenging topics.
Papers (original articles, reviews, and case reports) focused on classic topics, such the study of the post-mortem interval, will be welcome since the application of new technologies and tools is an eternal challenge for solving old problems and offers a more accurate answer to the judicial authority. At the same time, we encourage the submission of original articles, reviews, case reports, and case series that deal with improving clinical risk management strategies and malpractice claims deflation strategies.
Finally, papers (also comments) dealing with new issues of medical ethics will be of great interest.
