Special Issue – Trauma Informed Care in Forensic Nursing – Call for Authors

At our recent annual general meeting of the Journal of Forensic Nursing Editorial Board, held in conjunction with the International Conference on Forensic Nursing Science and Practice, we decided to dedicate a special issue of the Journal of Forensic Nursing to trauma informed care. Forensic nurses are all too familiar with the impact of trauma in the lives of those that they serve.  As such, they have a significant role to play in the adoption of trauma informed practices and advocating for trauma informed organizational change.

We are currently seeking original articles, review papers, and case reports for a special issue dedicated to trauma informed care, for a special issue to be published in 2019.  Researchers, clinicians, educators, and others whose work interfaces social justice, violence, issues in criminal justice, health care systems and forensic nursing, are invited to submit articles.  All submissions must explicitly address trauma-informed policies and/or practices. 

I am pleased to announce that Drs.  Kathryn Laughon and Annie Lewis-O'Connor have agreed to serve as guest editors for this special issue.  Please see the attached for further information, regarding suggested topics, journal submission guidelines, and contact information.  We look forward to receiving your queries and your manuscripts for review for publication.

All the best,
