Demystifying Medical Forensic Exams

Date / Time
Webinar Abstract

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. At the same time, a medical forensic exam can increase the likelihood that evidence collected will aid in criminal investigations, result in perpetrators being held accountable, and further sexual violence being prevented.

Presenters will include Monica DiGiandomenico of the PRC, Susan Chasson, JD, RN, SANE-A and Kim Day, RN, SANE-A of the International Association of Forensic Nurses.

Date: Thursday, March 12, 2020
Time: 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
