Hosted by IAFN’s ISAAC, ANDVSA and AKNWRC Christina Love learned to keep a lifetime of violence a secret for over two decades. Like many survivors, she turned to alcohol and drugs as a way to cope with trauma. As an adult Christina experienced homelessness. She found herself a shell of the human she once was and unable to recognize her reflection in the mirror. She was often denied access to the services that were designed to help. This form of systemic abuse not only retraumatized her but was its own trauma. Through the art and tradition of storytelling, Christina Love will recall harmful events as a child and adult. She will also tell stories of what services, practices, and words empowered healing and hope. In this fifth segment of our ongoing series, Christina will weave together each of the previous topics, that include: the importance of understanding how our history of violence has laid the groundwork for the injustices we see today, the multiple layers of trauma that each survivor can experience, the intersection of substance use and trauma, the liberation of education and the power of community and connection. Christina wants the world to know that recovery is possible “NO MATTER WHAT” and that each life is worthy of our time and efforts!

Even the most seasoned health care professionals, billing, and revenue integrity departments experience missed revenue opportunities, which could potentially leave patients vulnerable to inadvertently receiving a bill from their sexual assault medical forensic examination. Understanding how to appropriately bill for the sexual assault exam is crucial to program sustainability, patient-centered care, and effectively bridging the divide so patients are not erroneously billed for services following their exam. At the conclusion of this webinar and with the guidance from a coding specialist, participants will gain increased knowledge regarding: the history of billing and coding; CMS documentation requirements related to billing; and, the complexity to critical care time, medical decision making, and evaluation and management in relation to billing for the sexual assault medical forensic examination.

In this webinar, Christina Love, ANDVSA Senior Specialist, will share about the multiple layers of trauma many survivors experience, which can include sexual assault, domestic violence, homelessness, historical trauma, substance use, and more. In her own experience, she has learned that understanding how the trauma she survived led to substance use, was key in her liberation and recovery. As such, she will share how when we as providers better understand the multiple layers of trauma that people experience, it can help us better meet people where they are at, not just in the moment, but also in the larger context of their lives.

Clinicians have expressed some level of discomfort with the process of obtaining informed consent for TeleSAFE examinations. Consent is less about obtaining a signature on a form than it is having the patient make informed decisions about their care. In this atypical, interactive online training, participants will engage in meaningful conversations around the issues of informed consent, confidentiality and victims’ rights specifically as it relates to the TeleSAFE experience.

According to the National Institute of Justice (2016), more than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women (84.3 percent) have experienced violence in their lifetime. This is a shockingly high number. Native American Survivors of sexual violence also are carrying a significantly high level of both historical trauma and multi-generational trauma. An advocate that is involved in crisis responses to Indigenous Survivors of sexual violence are critical early responders that can either enhance the opportunity for an Indigenous Survivor’s healing and recovery or can have little impact on this current trauma. This session will engage participants in developing an understanding of the importance of having Indigenous options for Native Survivors of sexual violence. We will explore together the prevalence of sexual violence experienced by American Indian and Alaska Native Survivors and why Indigenous solutions are critical as a crisis and long-term response for Native Survivors of sexual violence. We will also explore the importance of culturally centered/Indigenous centered response for laying the foundation for healing and recovery.

This virtual training draws attention to the pervasive issue of violence against Native women, who suffer disproportionately high levels of sexual and domestic violence. The roots of violence in our nation have led to a culture of abuse and the crisis we see today. This training will examine the history of genocide, colonization, assimilation, and the anti-violence movement. Viewers will learn how gender-based and race-based oppression and violence intersect leading to higher rates of victimization and lethality. We hope people will walk away with a holistic view of indigenous culture and the impact these issues have on every aspect of their life and community for generations.

Child maltreatment is a serious problem with the potential for lifelong physical and mental health consequences, even death. According to the United States Department of Health & Human Services an estimated 656,000 American children were victims of child maltreatment in 2019. However, based upon retrospective studies of adults we know that this number represents only a small proportion of true child maltreatment victims. Pediatric healthcare providers, especially forensic nurses, are uniquely positioned not only to identify potential victims of child maltreatment but also to prevent child maltreatment prior to its occurrence. This educational session will discuss practice level child maltreatment prevention interventions, both universal and targeted.
