(There is PowerPoint presentation to accompany each of the nine Istanbul Protocol Model Medical Curriculum modules. Designed primarily for instructors who prefer to use a lecture format, the content of the presentations closely parallels that of the modules.) The first Module provides students with a foundation for understanding how torture is defined in international law, and the duties of States to prohibit torture and ill-treatment. It reviews common torture practises in the world today. As mentioned above, instructors should add country-specific information such as national norms and regional practise. A number of resources are suggested for this purpose. Module 1 also discusses international and regional monitoring mechanisms that health professionals should be aware of and specific safeguards for individuals deprived of their liberty. Module 1 should provide students with a foundation for understanding country-specific challenges to torture prevention and accountability and help them identify effective remedial measures.
