The Wisconsin Department of Justice has launched a new website which provides information and assistance for nurses and other medical professionals practicing medical forensics and responding to sexual assault cases.
The website provides information, training, and technical assistance for medical professionals to learn how to collect evidence. Said Attorney General Van Hollen, “It’s incredibly important we tend to the victims of sexual assault with compassion and utmost sensitivity while gathering evidence critical to a successful prosecution.”
April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, and four statewide medical forensic training programs will be offered by the Department of Justice. Information about these trainings can be found at: http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/sane-registration
