The National Protocol for Sexual Abuse Medical Forensic Examinations: Pediatric

In April, 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) released the National Protocol for Sexual Abuse Medical Forensic Examinations: Pediatric (Pediatric SAFE Protocol), which was developed in partnership with the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN). During this interactive webinar, the presenter panel will describe for stakeholders the necessity for development of the Pediatric SAFE Protocol, the contributions of both medical and multidisciplinary child sexual abuse experts in shaping the evidence-based practice recommendations within the Pediatric SAFE Protocol, and the recommendations with regard to clinicians caring for child sexual abuse victims. In addition, the presenters will illustrate the pediatric technical assistance project, that will offer supplemental material useful to the practicing clinician as well as the multidisciplinary team.
