(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.) Module 2 introduces students to the Istanbul Protocol, its purpose, history, content, applications and limitations. It reviews procedural safeguards relevant to medico-legal evaluations of torture and ill-treatment. Module 2 also provides a review of medical ethics relevant to torture documentation and outlines the duties of clinicians working with alleged torture victims and detainees in general. Instructors should include additional information on country-specific rules and regulations regarding medical documentation of torture and ill-treatment. This will aid students in addressing country-specific challenges. Module 2 also reviews general guidelines for gathering evidence.
