Access to adult and juvenile medical forensic examinations is an integral component of the PREA standards and requires coordination of services among multidisciplinary team members in confinement as well as the community. This webinar will demystify the Sexual Assault Forensic Examination for corrections and community professionals who are responsible for protecting, advocating for, and assisting inmate, detainee, and resident victims and survivors. 

Join us to learn about the requirements for PREA standards 115.64 and 115.82 and how a timely, victim-centered medical forensic examination can validate and address sexual abuse patients' concerns, minimize their trauma, and promote healing.
