How much pressure can the neck take?

Dr Jill McIlraith has been an specialist general practitioner in Dunedin for more than 30 years. She has overlapped this with decades working in the area of sexual health and sexual assault care.

As one of a handful of local MEDSAC (Medical Sexual Assault Clinicians Aotearoa) doctors doing forensic sexual assault examinations, she is increasingly dealing with non-fatal strangulation as part of sexual assault.

In this talk for the Ōtepoti Dunedin Branch of the NZ Forensic Science Society, Dr McIlraith will discuss how often non-fatal strangulation is underplayed by victims and assailants, yet can have major ongoing consequences for the victim and for the justice system.

All welcome.
