Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: How Advocacy Benefits the Victim and the Forensic Nurse
Webinar Description

The International Association of Forensic Nurses offers educational opportunities for professionals caring for victims of violence.  Some courses contain medical photographs of injuries, genital regions, and other potentially triggering topics and images. If you need assistance in processing trauma, help is available

This presentation will review the role of the community based medical advocate for survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence before, during, and after a medical forensic exam. The presenters will share their expertise on the benefits of advocacy’s presence for both the clinician and the patient. They will provide an overview of various models of advocacy programs and the confidentiality associated with each. Available resources will be shared including the recently released National Protocol for IPV Medical Forensic Examinations.

Presented by:
Karla Vierthaler, National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC)
Sara Walters, National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC)
Andrea Wilson, National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV)
