Description
The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) workshop is an intensive five-day course to familiarize registered nurses with aspects of the forensic and health care processes for sexual assault victims. This course, taught by multi-disciplinary Iowa experts in the areas of forensic nursing, law enforcement, advocacy and criminal prosecution, emphasizes the overall importance of the role of the SANE and their role in the interdisciplinary Sexual Assault Response Team (SART). This training adheres to the National Training Standards for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examiners for adults and adolescents and the IAFN Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Education Guidelines. Participants will learn to apply the nursing process for the medical and forensic evaluation of patients who have experienced sexual assault. Enrollees will participate in a simulated forensic history, demonstrate speculum insertion on a live patient model and practice expert witness testimony in a mock trial as a part of the educational training. Group exercises/activities are designed to build upon materials presented during the course. The participant will have a beginning understanding of the issues and complexities of the SANE role. Lead faculty for the course includes Linda Ledray, PhD, RN, FAAN, SANE-A. Dr. Ledray is a nationally/internationally recognized expert, researcher, and pioneer in the area of forensic nursing. Pamela Terrill, MS, SANE-A complements Dr. Ledray’s content by providing the Iowa perspective. Other expert Iowa faculty will contribute their expertise to the interdisciplinary content. Preconference reading and course work will be sent with confirmation of participation. This is a required portion of the training and will be collected on the first day of class. PROGRAM OBJECTIVES Upon completion of the offering participants should be able to: 1. Describe the role of various health care, law enforcement and criminal prosecution personnel in working with sexual assault victims. 2.
