Effective Telenursing Response to Sexual Assault

OVC is hosting an Expert Q&A session, Effective Telenursing Response to Sexual Assault. It will be held live on November 14th from 2-3pm, but will be posted on their website afterward for review. Susan Chasson, M.S.N., J.D., SANE–A, and Dr. Sheridan Miyamoto will be the featured presenters. From the website:

In this session targeted toward Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, participants will learn about some of the advantages to telenursing, as well as some of the potential obstacles, such as cross‐state licensure, credentialing for nurses responding to a hospital where they are not employees, provision of medications, and maintenance of medical records. Collaboration with hospital medical and nursing staff is key to an effective telenursing response.
