Sexual Assault

The SART Toolkit Update Webinar

NSVRC and IAFN are co-hosting a webinar on the newly updated SART toolkit, to be released in August. The session will be held July 12th at 2pm ET. From the announcement:

The collaborative team approach to sexual assault is a recommendation contained in the US DOJ’s National SAFE Protocol. Forensic Nurses are often intimately involved in the creation of Sexual Assault Response Team’s (SARTs) and in sustaining them. Since the original Toolkit was created in 2009 there have been updates to the SAFE Protocol, the creation of a new Pediatric SAFE Protocol and other guiding documents for response teams to use. This webinar will introduce forensic nurses to the updated Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) Toolkit, hosted by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. The new SART Toolkit is the result of collaborative efforts to provide evidence-based information on best practices to SARTs.
