Summary:

The FBI indicates that 89,098 rapes were reported to law enforcement in 2015, up 6.3% from 2014. People who have been raped or sexually assaulted enter the healthcare system through many avenues. Nurses and first responders may encounter them in the field, the ED, or in obstetric or primary care settings. These patients may also be found in pain clinics; in specialty centers for GI, genitourinary, or neurological workups; or in gynecological or urologic settings as they move from specialty to specialty, seeking a medical diagnosis of their symptoms. Healthcare professionals of various disciplines who ask the right questions and assess and observe these patients can help tremendously.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to educate nurses, physicians, social workers, and EMTs, paramedics about identifying and caring for victims of rape and sexual assault. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss three aspects of the experience of sexual assault
