SANEs are in a strategic position to be able to advance prevention efforts.  Our theme for Sexual Assault Awareness Month is Prevention is Possible and we see SANEs each day that are helping to shape healthier people, families and communities.

The International Association of Forensic Nurses has created a list of action steps and a road map for integrating primary prevention into Nursing Practice. What steps resonate with you?  What have you tried?  What would you add?  Share your thoughts below or online with #SAAM.


If you are new prevention, check out the NSVRC tips for health care professionals about sexual violence and healthy sexuality. Join in the social side of SAAM with our #30daysofSAAM Instagram Contest or changing your Facebook profile picture.
