Celebrate Everyday Superheroes: Forensic Nurses! 

Celebrating the Nurse in Forensic Nursing

The International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) has decreed the week of November 9-13 as Forensic Nurses Week. Forensic Nurses are on the front line making sure victims of rape, child abuse and domestic violence receive compassionate care, while vital forensic evidence is collected and preserved.  IAFN invites you to join the association and colleagues who will celebrate this annual event by offering forensic nurses the recognition and praise they deserve!

Forensic nurses play such a vital role to those affected by violence not only by collecting important evidence that can be used in court, but also by offering patients compassion and emotional support after traumatic events.  To get started on festivities to honor your favorite forensic nurses, visit IAFN's website where a promotional packet, sample press release, sample tweet, and ideas to help celebrate are available.

On Friday, November 13, 2009, IAFN says WEAR LILAC in honor of this special week!

PRESENTED BY: Jennifer Pierce-Weeks, International Association of Forensic Nurses

DESCRIPTION:

Healthcare providers are in a unique position regarding effective identification and response to sexual violence in Later Life (National Center on Elder Abuse, 2012).  The short- and long-term health implications for patients, in combination with increased mortality rates, make recognizing and effectively responding to sexual violence against older adults an important responsibility of all health care professionals.  Collaboration with community-based sexual assault organizations and advocates is helpful in ensuring that health care professionals have the tools they need to identify and respond to sexual violence.

AUDIENCE:

Forensic examiners, medical advocates, healthcare professionals and sexual assault advocates --This event is for anyone who works closely with adults in later life and would like to learn more about how sexual violence impacts the elder community.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. The content will be the same for each webinar and we are limiting the audience to 30 individuals, please feel free to sign up for either but not both.

Cost: Free.

Description: 

All states and territories must certify that they are in compliance with VAWA 2005 requirements for medical forensic examinations. Specifically, exams must be available to sexual assault victims: 1) free of charge, and 2) regardless of their decision to participate in the criminal justice process.
 
Communities have faced considerable challenges in designing protocols that are compliant, in areas such as: the initial response to a sexual assault disclosure, payment for the medical forensic examination, mandatory reporting to law enforcement, storage and transportation of evidence, case tracking and retrieval, processing of evidence, and the potential for evidence-based prosecution (i.e., without the victim's cooperation). For many states and territories, the changes that are required in public policy and daily practice have been described as "monumental."

Description: 

In this free one hour webinar, Joann Schladale will provide an overview of a clearly defined approach for evaluating and establishing safety after sexual harm by youth occurs. When adults support responsibility, accountability and healing for everyone involved, safety is established and families experience stability, two key factors for trauma recovery. Positive youth development and sexual health provide a foundation for preventing it from happening again.

After participating in this webinar participants will be able to:

  •  Recognize girls’ anger and their perceived options to express that anger and how their experience impacts their emotional health and future relationships as they enter adulthood
  • Learn concrete strategies to help girls build social competencies and emotional well-being now and in the future
  • Understand the impact of technology (both positive and negative) on girls’ ability to navigate relationships

About our series:
The impact of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences continues long after the traumatic event has ended. Exposure to trauma is a pervasive issue that has significantly impacted the health and well-being of millions of Americans and nearly everyone seeking services in the public health and social
services systems. Understanding how trauma affects the emotional, behavioral, cognitive, social, and physical functioning of the people we care for can improve all health and social services.

All health and social service providers are welcome, including medical care providers, dentists, social workers, teachers, mental health workers, substance use disorder treatment providers, corrections officers, and community program staff, to name a few.
