Episode 1: Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners

The first episode of At the Core of Care takes a look at Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners in Pennsylvania. Few healthcare providers are trained to do this tough job, which requires a timely and skilled healthcare response that addresses physical and mental health. Examiners must also be trained on the forensic and legal component so they can collect evidence that can hold up in court. An innovative program out of Penn State University, the SAFE-T Center, closes a gap in services offering telehealth support medical practices in rural and underserved areas. Hear from the incredible nurses at the SAFE-T Center and the healthcare professionals they support.



At the Core of Care highlights the consumer experience of patients, families, and communities and the creative efforts of nurses and other partners to better meet their health and healthcare needs through diversity, leadership, and practice innovation.
