Abstract:

Poster presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013, Sunday, November 17, 2013

The purpose of this project was to develop and  test a pilot competency assessment tool for sexual assault nurses.  The content for the competency assessment was based on available evidence, primarily targeting current standards of SANE practice.  Descriptive statistics from the regional crime lab allowed the researchers to identify areas for improvement in the evidence-collection technique.  This information was then used in the development of the content of the competency assessment.  A collaborative team of experts developed an online competency assessment using a web-based platform.  

The competency assessment was tested on a small sample of sexual-assault nurse examiners.  The instrument demonstrated a reasonable level of consistency and reliability (include stats in parentheses here) for a pilot test.  The aim of developing a cost-effective and efficient online competency assessment was achieved.
