4032: Attitudes of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners: Expanding the Role to Care for Young Children
Findings from a study, "Attitudes of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners: Expanding the Role to Care for Young Children" will be presented. Attitudes expressed by the SANEs were varied; many who are opposed cited concern about experiencing vicarious victimization (e.g. "I would picture my daughter's face--I couldn't handle it"). Implications from the findings can inform pediatric psychiatric-mental health care and policy.
