From the site:

For over a decade it has been a challenge for many communities, particularly rural ones, to access good quality adolescent/adult Sexual Assault Nurse/Forensic Examiner (SANE/SAFE) training. Additionally, when trainers are brought in, communities may or may not be receiving SANE/SAFE training that adheres to the IAFN SANE Education Guidelines. In 2011, IAFN was awarded a grant through the National Institute of Justice to provide online SAFE training with a clinical skills component in an effort to address this challenge in acquiring training. In 2012, IAFN launched three 40-hour online trainings over the course of 12 months, and sent the providers who completed the online component through a live 16 hour clinical skills laboratory. Over 200 registered nurses and advanced practice providers attended. This session will take a closer look at the online training, clinical skills lab and evaluation findings gleaned from participation in this course.
