Join us on April 10, 2014 for a free webinar:
Medical and Forensic Considerations in Caring for Transgender Sexual Assault Survivors
Navigating medical services and advocacy with transgender survivors may be uncharted territory for forensic nurses and advocates. Transgender sexual assault victims may differ from other survivors in body configurations, high levels of polyvictimization, increased discrimination and denial of services from other providers, as well as often discordant relationships with their body in general. For these reasons and more, it is critical for forensic exam settings and providers to be culturally aware of trans-specific differences in order to provide sensitive and effective services. This webinar will focus on some of the key transgender inclusions in the National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations, case examples of medical advocacy with transgender survivors, and discussion of unique differences (both challenges and solutions) in providing care and advocacy to transgender survivors. Guest presenters include Kim Day (International Association of Forensic Nurses) and Eric Stiles (National Sexual Violence Resource Center).
