About the Event
Third Thursday Series 6 of 11 Sexual Assault Training & Technical Assistance, hosted by IAFN's ISAAC, ANDVSA and ANWRC

The success of Sexual Assault Response Teams (SARTs) hinges on active involvement from each key stakeholder. A SART that is comprised of a healthy collaborative group of advocates, law enforcement, prosecutors, and sexual assault nurse examiners/forensic nurse examiners (SANEs/FNEs), will find their approach and response to trauma-informed, victim-centered care to not only be successful, but sustainable. Through the lens of the forensic nurse, challenges faced by key stakeholders while building a collaborative victim-centered response will be discussed with a particular focus on sustainability of the medical forensic team. As a result of this interactive audience presentation, participants will gain a better understanding of the importance of victim-centered care through a well-functioning SART model.
