“I don’t want to mess this up, but I don’t know if I’m doing it right.”

If this thought has ever run through your head when responding to transgender patients/survivors of sexual assault, this webinar is for you. If you’ve never responded to transgender patients/survivors and you want to get it right — this webinar is for you.

Using a patient simulation, you’ll learn how healthcare providers can take a person-centered medical history with a trans sexual assault patient.

You’ll also see a trauma-informed law enforcement interview with a trans sexual assault survivor, demonstrating respectful questions and interactions that build trust.

Join us to learn how you can get it right — even if you make mistakes — and respond to trans patients/survivors in a compassionate, effective way, at every step.


As a result of this webinar, participants will learn how to:

  • Gather relevant and important information without prying, allowing the patient/survivor to decide what they disclose. 
  • Approach potentially difficult topics with trans survivors (such as STIs or pregnancy) while maintaining trust. 
  • Summarize resources in the Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Exam (SAMFE) Virtual Practicum to use as training tools for providing better care for and improving interviews with trans survivors. 
  • Conduct an investigative interview in a way that demonstrates respect and uses appropriate terminology.
