Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE)
As a registered nurse, this course will prepare you to provide comprehensive care for recent victims of sexual assault. Understand how to offer support, take histories, gain consent, conduct examinations and carry out interventions as needed. Examine risk factors for assault, standards of practice, physical and psychological consequences of assault, forensic and non-forensic examination, injury identification and documentation, as well as discharge follow up.
