Medical testimony at trial can be impacted in many ways. Pretrial motions and challenges at trial can shape and potentially narrow the scope of the intended testimony. This session will cover those legal issues, discussing common pretrial motions including Daubert, Frye and hearsay challenges. The speakers will review the components of a variety of motions and identify the ways in which forensic nurses and other medical professionals can discuss their professional roles and responsibilities so as to not inadvertently limit their capacity to testify at trial.
