At the Core of Care Podcast: Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners
The first episode of At the Core of Care podcast, by the Pennsylvania Action Coalition, takes a look at Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners in PA. Few healthcare providers are trained to do this tough job, which requires a timely and skilled healthcare response that addresses physical and mental health. Examiners must also be trained on the forensic and legal component so they can collect evidence that can hold up in court. An innovative program out of Penn State University, the SAFE-T Center, closes a gap in services offering telehealth support medical practices in rural and underserved areas. Hear from the incredible nurses at the SAFE-T Center and the healthcare professionals they support. This episode was published in July 2019.
