Marshall hosts pediatric sexual assault training
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Registered nurses from Indiana, Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia are attending a pediatric sexual assault training session this week at Marshall University.
Marshall's Forensic Science Center is hosting the five-day course that began Monday.
The training is designed for pediatric sexual assault nurse examiners. These examiners are registered nurses who are trained to handle issues surrounding pediatric victims of sexual assault.
Marshall says in a news release that the course will provide basic knowledge on how to recognize, collect and preserve evidence, interview victims and connect them to community resources for follow-up.
