CHA Issue-Based Forum: Responding to Patients Who Report a Sexual Assault - for Nurses
3:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Location: Live Webinar, Presented at your Facility


  • Acute Care Hospital Member: $10
  • Other Member: $10
  • Non-Member: This program is only open to CHA members.

The unique needs of a patient who reports a sexual assault often strain an already overburdened healthcare system.  Yet it remains critically important for responding healthcare personnel to understand and address those needs.  It is not enough to be a skilled healthcare professional, one must provide a patient-centered clinical response while remaining an unbiased member of the evidence collection process — all while delivering care as part of a dynamic multidisciplinary team.

CHA is pleased to partner with the Connecticut Office of Victim Services to offer two opportunities for nurses to participate in a three-hour virtual training that will provide a background perspective on the care of adolescent and adult patients who report a sexual assault, the importance of consistent care for these individuals, and an explanation of available resources such as the State of Connecticut Technical Guidelines for Health Care Response to Patients Who Report A Sexual Assault, followed by a step-by-step explanation of all the components of both the CT100B and CT400A Sexual Assault Evidence Collection Kits. 

Target Audience:  This training session is designed for nurses and healthcare educators (information on a training designed specifically for providers can be accessed here).
