Professionals across the country are struggling to implement a community response system that is compliant with the provisions of the Violence Against Women Act of 2005, 42 U.S.C. § 3796gg-4(d) (typically referred to as “VAWA 2005”). With resources provided by a grant from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), we can help to achieve this goal in your community.

In some states, medical professionals are legally mandated to notify law enforcement of any sexual assault that is committed (or suspected to have been committed) against one of their patients. These laws vary dramatically in terms of what triggers the mandated reporting requirement, what information must be reported, who must be notified of the report, and what specific procedures must be followed to comply with this mandated reporting requirement. This webinar is designed to clarify these complex issues and explore questions regarding compliance with VAWA 2005 provisions and forensic exams.
