Online Self-Study Dates: February 6 – March 6, 2020
On-Site Training Dates: March 9 – 13, 2020 at the University of Southern Indiana
This educational training will follow the 2018 International Association of Forensic Nurses guidelines for Adolescent/Adult/Pediatric Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE). Prior to the five-day in-person training, each participant must complete a 24-hour online, self-study module.
The SANE training participants will learn the specific protocols in the care and examination of sexual assault victims, including the different aspects of the sexual assault physical examination (history taking, evidence collection, documentation, etc.), as well as how to preserve specimens and ensure chain of custody. In addition, attendees are exposed to members of a Sexual Assault Response Team, and will participate in a mock trial for a better understanding of legal proceedings.
To sit for a SANE certification exam, a nurse must complete all of the requirements of a SANE training course, as well as complete clinical requirements outlined by the International Association of Forensic Nurses, which will be discussed during the training. USI program staff will monitor and provide documentation of completion of clinical requirements. Southwest Indiana Area Health Education Center (AHEC) and USI College of Nursing and Health Professions Center for Health Professions Lifelong Learning are collaborating with regional partners to host this training. Instructors include SANE-trained and SANE-certified nurses, Indiana State Police forensic scientists, law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys and victim support specialists.
Recognizing the importance of participation across different agencies, the training will not be limited to nurses. The following are considered potential participants: law enforcement, advocates, prosecutors, health care professionals, students and social workers.
