SANE-A-PALOOZA is a proctored, clinical, experience-focused training designed to prepare sexual assault nurse examiners for clinical work. This offering will prepare the forensic nurse examiner to complete a sexual assault medical forensic exam. The attendee will perform hands-on, proctored examinations with diverse standardized patients in a clinical exam setting. This learning activity is designed to assist participants with demonstrating confidence, comfort and competence in performance of a comprehensive evaluation of a client (including timely and accurate evidence collection and documentation) who has experienced sexual assault. Pre-requisite(s):Learners attending SANE-A-PALOOZA must have previously attended a 40-hour Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner course. SANE-A-PALOOZA is not a comprehensive didactic course for learners with no knowledge/experience in forensic care. It is a course designed to enhance comfort, competence and confidence of the learner in providing high quality, hands-on care to victims of sexual and physical violence.
