Description: 

In 2009 a dedicated team of survivors of sexual assault, sexual assault victim advocates, healthcare providers, and criminal justice professionals developed the Healthcare Guidelines to promote a consistent healthcare response to victims of sexual assault. This one-day training will provide an opportunity for participants to engage in learning about these guidelines and the model healthcare response to sexual assault. Participants will become better equipped to understand the roles, interactions and expectations of victim advocates, medical personnel and law enforcement within the guidelines.
