Final Report (2017-2021)
SAFE-T aims to decrease disparities in the quality of forensic sexual assault care by providing expert, live, interactive mentoring, quality assurance, and evidence-based training to less experienced nurses via telehealth technology. When a sexual assault examination is performed at one of our partner hospitals, one of SAFE-T System’s expert Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (teleSANEs) provides real-time support to both the on-site nurse and the patient, ensuring best practices, proper evidence collection, and a supportive environment for the patient.
This is the final report following four years on this project, providing a high-level overview of the project goals, philosophy, and approach to the work. A critical part of this effort was to determine if the proposed solutions would have the intended impact. In the final section of this report, we offer perspectives on future needs to advance the forensic sexual assault field.
