CHA Issue-Based Forum: Responding to Patients Who Report a Sexual Assault - for Providers
Location: Live Webinar, Presented at your Facility

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 providers to participate in a two-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.
Completion of this course will qualify in satisfying the DPH CME requirements for sexual assault training.
Target Audience: This training session is designed for providers including physicians, physician assistants, and APRNs (information on a training designed specifically for nursing staff can be accessed here).
