About the Program:
This live clinical training is a provider-directed clinical skills program designed to promote the professional performance of the RN or APRN in the role as an adult/adolescent sexual assault forensic examiner (SAFE) or sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE). The purpose is to prepare didactically trained SAFE/SANE nurses in the clinical aspects of the adult/adolescent sexual assault medical-forensic examination, regardless of the medical practice setting.
Following this program, the participants can be expected to:
- Verbalize and demonstrate clinical competency in performing a medical-forensic sexual and/or physical assault examination of an adult/adolescent patient
- Verbalize and demonstrate clinical competency in performing a detailed female and male anogenital examination, including speculum and anoscope insertion
- Verbalize and demonstrate the ability to utilize assistive visualization techniques, including toluidine blue dye, foley catheter technique, alternative light source, digital camera
- Verbalize and demonstrate competency and application of critical thinking skills in a variety of sexual assault examination scenarios including drug-facilitated assault, reported vs. non-reported
Upon completion of this clinical training, nurses will have a more comprehensive understanding of the medical-legal examination and factors affecting the care of the sexual assault patient. Lecture and return demonstration of essential skills utilizing live patient models (GTAs), including history taking, assessment, forensic photography, evidence collection, patient education, care planning and discharge, will be the core focus. This clinical training will enhance the nurse’s ability to provide comprehensive forensic medical care to persons affected by sexual assault in a variety of complex patient scenarios.
