SANE Adult/Adolescent/Pediatric Training
February 4, 2024 - February 8, 2024
Online Self-Study Dates: February 1 – March 1, 2024
On-Site Training Dates: March 4 – 8, 2024
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.
