Sexual Assault—Forensic and Clinical Management

Virtual Practicum

“From my perspective, [this is] the biggest public health intervention for sexual assault since the national protocol!“ Patricia M. Speck, DNSc, FNP-BC, FAAN, FAAFS, DF-IAFN, SANE-A, SANE-P, Assistant Professor and Public Health Nursing Option Coordinator, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, College of Nursing

This unique, comprehensive and cost-effective training tool helps you advance skills in all aspects of sexual assault forensic examinations, from initial meeting, to patient-centered medical examination and treatment, to proper collection and preparation of evidence, to pretrial and courtroom preparation.

At your own computer, on your own schedule, a distinguished faculty of master practitioners, legal experts, and other professionals will take you through an interactive virtual forensic facility to experience and explore best practices that lead to improved outcomes.

Regardless of your experience level, the Practicum™ is a must-have tool for forensic examiners, trainers, students, and other medical professionals who care for victims of sexual assault. This is a great tool even if you are just exploring the possibility of becoming a SAFE (sexual assault forensic examiner).

This program does not replace the standard 40-hour SANE training course, but rather is an innovative supplement that will help forensic examiners provide better patient care.
