Tribal Forensic Healthcare Training Project
The Indian Health Service (IHS) has funded the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) to develop, deliver, evaluate in-person and provide web-based training related to the identification, collection, and preservation of medical forensic evidence obtained during treatment of victims of sexual and domestic violence.
The Tribal Forensic Healthcare Training project provides training for:
- Sexual Assault Examiner
- Pediatric Sexual Abuse Examiner
- Sexual Assault Clinical Skills
- Pediatric Sexual Abuse Clinical Skills
- Domestic Violence Examiner
- Domestic Violence Awareness
Through the International Association of Forensic Nurses, IHS hosts a webinar series that focuses on a variety of forensic healthcare topics related to Child Maltreatment, Intimate Partner Violence, and Sexual Assault/Abuse. The training allows medical professionals to acquire and maintain the knowledge, skills, and competent clinical forensic practice to improve the response to domestic and sexual violence in hospitals, health clinics, and health stations within IHS. To register for upcoming training that offers free continuing education units (CEUs), continuing medical education units (CMEs), and behavioral health CEUs, visit the Tribal Forensic Healthcare website. Past webinars are archived and may be viewed at a later date for no CME/CEU credit.
