Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners
This episode takes a look at Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners in Pennsylvania. Few healthcare providers are trained to do this work, which requires a timely and skilled healthcare response that addresses physical and mental health. Examiners must also be trained on the forensic and legal component so they can collect evidence that can hold up in court. An innovative program out of Penn State University, the SAFE-T Center, closes a gap in services offering telehealth support medical practices in rural and underserved areas.
