(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 9 provides information on how to write a medical report and provide court testimony. The Module reviews a number of general considerations for report writing, the content of medical reports, how to formulate appropriate interpretations and conclusions, and how to convey them to adjudicators. The Module also discusses how to address the problem of inconsistencies in an individual’s case. Students may be asked to bring their written reports from the Case Examples in Modules 7 and 8 and participate in a Mock Judicial Proceeding, wherein they have an opportunity to present their evidence in “court” and play the role of a cross-examining lawyer. Instructors should consider adding course evaluation component to the end of Module 9.
