For the implementation and evaluation phase, 10 clinical nurses in emergency department will be invited to evaluate the clinical applicability and feasibility of the guideline, and 10 victims of sexual assault will be invited to rate their satisfaction of the care by the newly developed guideline. Results: The guideline provides forensic examiners including nurses and physicians with up-to-date, evidence-based strategies and consistent methods to provide optimal, sensitive and competent care to female victims of sexual assault.The process of developing and evaluating an evidence-based clinical guideline can also provide an example for clinicians to use scientific strategies to provide evidence-based practice.
