Most victim advocates are familiar with the role of the sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE), but many may not know about the unique work of a forensic nurse examiner (FNE). This webinar aims to increase understanding about the work of FNEs and collection of evidence in domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse, and other crimes. Through this webinar victim service providers and other participants will become familiar with the importance of the medical forensic exam for DNA collection in crimes other than sexual assault and why having such trained examiners is important to survivors.
Speakers: Jennifer Pierce-Weeks, Manager, Forensic Nurse Examiner Program, Memorial Hospital, Colorado Springs, Colorado
