What is a Testimony Institute?
A Testimony Institute is a 2 day gathering of prosecutors, victim advocates and healthcare professionals who serve victims of sexual assault. The Institute will provide these professionals with an opportunity to better understand each others roles when it comes to working with sexual assault patients/cases and will outline how these roles may intersect when a sexual assault case goes to trial. Professionals will receive the education, tools and time to practice testimony preparation, and watch or participate in testimony-delivery and testimony-elicitation skills in a true-to-life courtroom setting. The opportunity to practice testimony skills, view sample testimony, as well as receive and provide feedback will reduce the anxiety that many professionals have associated with testifying.

Ellen Johnson — SANE manager at Regions Hospital
Electronic Medical Records: What Are the Implications for Your SANE Program?
Recent healthcare legislation has provided incentives for providers and hospitals to adopt Electronic Medical records (EMR). Concern for indiscriminate access has many SANEs adamantly opposed to including the SANE report in the medical record. There has been heated debate over whether the SANE report is a medical record or a forensic record, and whether it needs to be housed with the rest of the medical data. The electronic format can also help guide the SANE exam and offer prompts for the exam and documentation of findings. There are also additional benefits of data extraction with electronic records. This session is designed to decrease anxiety regarding EMRs.
Second Hour will be a slide review of injuries and discussion about injury documentation.
