History of Expert Witness (Nurses)

  1. dear colleagues,

    i am writing an essay on the topic "expert witness (nurses)".
    i am stumbled upon the fact that i cannot find anywhere on the internet or in thelibraries here in canada, the part where it says when it all started.

    please, if you can, help me.i need some information on the history of expert witness (nurses).

    to be more specific, i know that previously, let's say since 1840 according to anglo saxon laws only phisicians acted as expert witnesses.

    however , i do not know when and how the nurses started to act as expert witnesses.

    please, please help me.

    this essay and subsequent presentation amounts to 55% of my total score in nursing ethics.

    i can only have 1 shot at it.
    i really need your help.
    please reply to xeops@hotmail.com, or here.

    I recently saw a discussion on allnurses about getting started in Legal Nurse Consulting. The best advice was to visit the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants. They publish the "bible" for LNCs, titled, "Principles and Practices for the Legal Nurse Consultant." I would guess the textbook must give some history. They have a website, and there is an lncgroup@yahoo.com. One of those two should give you answers if not other places to look.
