The adult September webinar from the Tribal Forensic Healthcare project will be Advanced Anorectal Evaluation of the Sexual Assault Patient. The inimitable Tara Henry will be teaching the session; you really should plan on attending for that reason alone (also: anorectal evaluation, folks–when do we ever discuss the topic once initial SA training is complete). The session will be held September 18th from 3-4:30pm ET. CEUs/CMEs are available, so this is a good one for our physician colleagues, as well. UPDATE: this and many of the webinars on this site can be found on the archive page. You’ll need to have an account (free) to access them.
From the site:
This webinar will discuss the proper way to conduct an anorectal post sexual assault exam. Discussion will include various assessment techniques as well as identification of anorectal structures. Anoscopes as an assessment tool will also be discussed in the presentation.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Describe the ano-rectal anatomy.
- Review the literature regarding ano-rectal injury post sexual assault.
- Discuss proper assessment techniques and identification of ano-rectal structures.
