Veracity for children in pediatric forensics.
J Forensic Nurs 2012; 8(4):155-62JF

Abstract

Child sexual abuse is a heinous crime, and school-age children are the age group most commonly victimized. When occurring within the family, it is particularly difficult and confusing for the child to disclose. The role of the sexual assault nurse examiner, and the challenges in applying the ethical concept of veracity when caring for these young victims is examined, using vignettes based on actual situations. It is essential for the forensic nurse to be able to understand and apply theories of childhood development to these cases in order to facilitate communication with the child, while providing assurance that they are believed.
