Virtual SOAR for SANE Pilot (July 30)

NHTTAC and the International Association of Forensic Nurses  (IAFN), are excited to offer a free virtual SOAR for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) training on July 30 from 3-5pm ET. This 2-hour pilot builds upon the existing SOAR Online modules: SOAR for Health Care, Trauma Informed Care, and Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services. The virtual SOAR for SANE is a 201 level training designed to support SANE, Sexual Assault Forensic Examiners (SAFE), and other healthcare providers in identifying and responding to trafficking within their professional setting.

  • Utilize a trauma-informed, person-centered, multidisciplinary approach
  • Assess the unique needs of individuals who have experienced trafficking through obtaining a health history and completing a thorough patient physical assessment
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to deliver appropriate services to individuals who have experienced trafficking
  • Share the importance of trafficking awareness and responsiveness with others in your work environment
