Evaluating the Work of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Programs in the Criminal Justice System: A Toolkit for Practitioners
The goal of this Toolkit is to assist SANE program staff in evaluating how their program affects the prosecution of sexual assault cases in their community. This Toolkit was developed as part of a research project on the work of SANEs in the criminal justice system. The lessons learned from that project helped inform the development of this Toolkit. However, it is important to note that legal outcomes are not the only or best way to evaluate the success of SANE programs. Patient care and crisis intervention are other outcomes that should be evaluated, but are beyond the scope of this Toolkit. The focus of this Toolkit is the impact of SANE programs on the progression of sexual assault cases through the criminal justice system, meaning how many cases make it how far through the system. To that end, the Toolkit is designed to provide practitioners with the necessary information for understanding and evaluating SANE programs’ impact on prosecution rates in their own community. It also offers ideas for utilizing this information to enhance the positive impact of your program on the reporting, investigation, and prosecution of sexual assault cases.
