IHS Sexual Assault Response Team, Sexual Assault Examiner, and Clinical Skills for Sexual Assault Examiners Trainings
The Indian Health Service is excited to announce several training opportunities at the regional level. The IHS is inviting Tribal and Federal health care providers, law enforcement, prosecutors, and victim advocates for a two-day, sexual assault response team (SART) training. The IHS is inviting registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, certified nurse-midwives, physician assistants, medical doctors, and osteopathic doctors for a five-day, sexual assault examiner (SAE) training. The IHS is also inviting registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, certified nurse-midwives, physician assistants, medical doctors, and osteopathic doctors from Tribal and federal facilities who have completed the 40-hour, SAE didactic training to a two-day clinical skills training. During the clinical skills training, participants will have the opportunity to apply information and skills learned in the 40-hour didactic portion of sexual assault forensic examiner training. The SAE and Clinical skills trainings are for IHS, Tribal, and Urban health care facilities, and referral centers serving American Indian patients. Planning is underway for the Alaska Region and dates and locations will be disseminated in the near future.
