Medical evaluation in Barnahus

We can support your work to develop your Barnahus’ medical services and support your team’s professional development by organising tailormade lectures, working group meetings or workshops on medical examinations in Barnahus.

Our sessions will support your work towards establishing Barnahus and meeting the Barnahus Quality Standards. According to the Barnahus Quality Standards, 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.

Depending on your needs, we can offer online or offline sessions with top European experts – including paediatricians and medical forensic doctors, covering a wide range of topics.
