Editorial Reviews

Sexual Assault Quick Reference, Second Edition contains easy-to-read, yet comprehensive, material related to caring for the sexual assault survivor. The many professions that make up the multidisciplinary team caring for these victims, including physicians, nurses, emergency responders, social service personnel, attorneys, and law enforcement, will find that this reference includes accurate, up-to-date information and guidelines to assist in the care of these individuals. This pocket reference captures the content of the many areas of knowledge necessary to care for victims of sexual assault and has been written by a team of leaders with insurmountable knowledge and experience in this field. This text is recommended with the highest regards.Jessica L. Ahmann, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC Family Nurse PractitionerChildren’s Advocacy CenterSanfordBismarck, North Dakota Sexual Assault Quick Reference is a must-have reference for new SANEs to assist in their assessments, nursing diagnoses, and documentation. Chapter 5, “Differential Diagnosis,” is comprehensive in identifying common normal variants and disease processes that mimic injuries seen in sexual abuse. I recommend this textbook for course coordinators when developing SANE-A/SANE-P course curricula as it covers a wide variety of subjects that should be taught in any SANE curriculum. The Quick Reference is also an excellent guide to SANE program coordinators to reference when developing polices, protocols, or guidelines for their institutions. All health care personnel would benefit from this textbook as it provides the most up-to-date material when working with victims of sexual violence.Barbra Bachmeir, JD, MSN, NP-CNurse Practitioner/Forensic Nurse ExaminerEmergency DepartmentIU Health-Methodist Hospital Indianapolis, Indiana This textbook would be a valuable reference for any professional or agency that provides services to sexual assault or sexual abuse survivors of any age. The chapters are written by experts in forensic medicine, forensic nursing, forensic DNA analysis, social work, and other specialties relevant to working with victims of sexual assault or sexual exploitation. Chapters include the basic legal definitions of sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual exploitation; differentiating abuse/assault injuries from nonabuse/nonassault injuries or disease process in a victim of any age; how to form and manage a multidisciplinary team; what to include in the forensic medical report and who will view that report; the chain of custody, combined DNA index system, DNA evidence, and collecting reference samples; sexual assault by an acquaintance or intimate partner and the heavy emotional burden it places on the victim; and issues unique to elder victims living in residential care facilities or when in-home caregivers are suspects.Thomas Collins, MA, ADN (Certificate in Forensic Nursing), AAS (Forensic Technology)Instructor, UCR ExtensionCertificate Program in Forensic NursingUniversity of California at RiversideRiverside, CaliforniaClinical Nurse IIIUniversity of California, San Diego Health System
