The Joint NCFM-NAFT 2018 Conference
This joint event comprised the 20th Nordic Conference on Forensic Medicine (NCFM) and the 4th Annual Meeting of the Nordic Association of Forensic Toxicologists (NAFT). The conference presented the latest developments in forensic medicine, toxicology, genetics, odontology and related disciplines. The theme of the conference, "Getting ready for new challenges in the society", represents new thinking within forensic medicine. In the rapidly changing society, the role of highly educated forensic experts is increasingly important. The experts are needed for the investigation of the consequences of terrorism and the refugee matter as well as for the everyday casework on cause of death and crime.
