Course Description
This course provides the foundation for practicing as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. Topics covered include forensic nursing concepts, basic evidence collection, injury identification, trauma-informed care, human trafficking, roles of the multi-disciplinary team members, conducting the medical-forensic examination, and more. This course adheres to the IAFN Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Education Guidelines.
Learning Outcome(s)
85% of learners will self-report an increase in knowledge and skill in the provision of trauma-informed, victim-centered care to the adult/adolescent population experiencing sexual assault and/or abuse.
Content Warning
The content in this course necessarily discusses the sexual assault of people, which may be emotionally and intellectually challenging. We do our best to make this course a space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with difficult content. This course includes realistic portrayals of patients that have experienced sexual assault and may be triggering for some.
