The Indian Health Service (IHS) has funded the International Association of Forensic Nurses to deliver training related to the identification, collection, and preservation of medical forensic evidence obtained during the treatment of victims of sexual and domestic violence. These trainings allow medical professionals to acquire and maintain the knowledge, skills, and competent clinical forensic practice to improve the response to domestic and sexual violence in hospitals, health clinics, and health stations within the Indian health system.


Registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, physicians, and physician assistants are invited to attend this two day, hands-on clinical skills training. Participants will develop and enhance their clinical practice skills in the care of adult victims of sexual assault. This training will simulate the patient care setting and include hands-on activities, such as forensic photography of genital and non-genital trauma and mock patient assessments. Participants will have the opportunity to attain or maintain specific skills such as performing detailed oral and ano-genital assessments, speculum examination techniques, proper evidence collection, integrity, and maintaining chain of custody under the guidance of experienced preceptors.


Registration is free to health care providers from IHS, Tribal, and Urban Indian health care facilities.Health care providers from referral facilities that serve American Indian or Alaska Native victims of sexual assault are also eligible to attend at no cost. Registrants MUST have previously completed a 40-hour Sexual Assault Examiner course. In some instances, this requirement may be waived upon request, and you may need to register to view on thier website.
