Informed Consent for Sexual Assault Exams

SAFEta has a webinar coming up in May (bless you, Kim for your advanced planning and scheduling)–Informed Consent for Sexual Assault Exams: It Is Not Just a Signature, It’s a Process. The session will be held May 2nd at 2pm ET. From the announcement:

Sexual assault victims must provide informed consent for a medical forensic exam. Although the concept of informed consent is a term that healthcare providers are very familiar with, there are additional legal implications associated with consent for the exam that providers need to understand. Victims need relevant information on the impact of participating in or declining each component of the exam.
