years, she has been working closely with the local law enforcement agencies and young victims of sexual
assault and molestation. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the audience a more in-depth
understanding of the role of a forensic nurse and to provide healthcare professionals the latest
information on caring for patients whose chief complaint is sexual assault. This presentation will also
provide healthcare professionals with tips and tools to assist patients who have experienced sexual
violence in seeking appropriate care from available resources.
