EVAWI is pleased to offer a series of FREE Community Conversations, delving into important topics covered in the new Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Exam (SAMFE) Virtual Practicum. In this first session, guests Linda McFarlane of Just Detention International, Kenneth James of the South Carolina Department of Corrections, and Nadine Ebanks, Lead Nurse Practitioner at the Nancy J. Cotterman Center in Florida, will discuss how we can better advocate and care for incarcerated patients.
The Community Conversation Series brings together expert practitioners to offer insights, share ideas, and provide examples of successful practices. Join us, and bring your own questions and suggestions for how we can all do better.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Identify approaches for balancing the security of everyone involved with the exam, and the patient’s privacy and dignity.
- Describe ways the hospital/forensic exam facility and correctional facility can coordinate in advance to help ensure the process goes smoothly for everyone.
- Explain the community-based advocate’s role at the exam and explain follow-up services that advocates can provide to incarcerated survivors.
