Clinical Skills Workshop

Clinical Skills & Expert Witness Testimony Workshop

Utilizing Guiding Teaching Assistants, our clinical skills workshop allows each SANE to practice physical examination. This includes proper speculum insertion, evidence collection/processing, and colposcopy. This training includes mock forensic medical exam practice.

The Expert Witness Testimony portion of this workshop takes place inside of a courtroom. SANEs will become familiar with the trial process and observe a mock trial.

Description

This free two-day workshop will refine the clinical skills of the didactically trained SANE and engage each participant in preparing to testify in court as an expert witness. Please note, that the completion of a 40-Hour Didactic SANE Training course is a prerequisite for this Clinical Skills Training & Workshop.

Objectives

1. Provide hands on Sexual Assault Examination training with live models including speculum insertion, evidence collection and handling, documentation and photography.

2. Increase the SANE’s skill and confidence with performing the forensic medical exam of adult and adolescent patients.

3. Observe a well-seasoned SANE’s expert witness testimony in an actual courtroom setting.

4. Gain familiarity with the courtroom and trial process.
