Medical Forensic Exams for Incarcerated Survivors: PREA Case Studies

In this supplement to the three-part PREA webinar series hosted by the National PREA Resource Center (PRC) and the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN), Just Detention International (JDI) will join the PRC and IAFN experts to share case study examples relating to the provision of medical forensic exams for incarcerated survivors. Drawing from key issues explored in the three-part series, as well as participant feedback, the case study examples will illustrate some of the foremost challenges to delivering care and collecting evidence in the aftermath of sexual abuse. Specifically, the speakers will highlight the appropriate activation and response process for accessing the medical forensic examination, how to maintain effective communication throughout the response process, considerations for the medical forensic exam, and post-assault care for incarcerated survivors — through the lens of the pertinent PREA standards.

Presented by: Angelita Olowu – IAFN, Cynthia Totten – Just Detention International, Marion Morgan – National PREA Resource Center, Monica DiGiandomenico – National PREA Resource Center
