PREA Demystifying Medical Forensic Exams

The PRC will host Part II of this webinar series in collaboration with the International Association of Forensic Nurses.


Access to adult and juvenile medical forensic examinations is an integral component of the PREA standards and requires coordination of services among multidisciplinary teams (stakeholders) members in confinement as well as the community. This webinar will demystify the Sexual Assault Forensic Examination for corrections (law enforcement and civilian) and community professionals who are responsible for protecting, advocating, and assisting inmates, detainees, resident victims/ 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 potentially 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.

 

Presented by: Monica DiGiandomenico with PRC, Susan Chasson, JD, RN, SANE-A, Kim Day RN, SANE-A with IAFN, Angelita Olowu, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P with IAFN
