Summary:

Roughly one forcible rape occurs every 6.2 minutes in the U.S. The Federal Bureau of Investigation indicates that 84,376 forcible rapes were reported to law enforcement in 2012, a slight increase over 2011. 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 Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) requires OnCourse Learning to verify the number of clock hours awarded through a pilot testing process.
