10th Anniversary of SANE/SART Program

Sexual assault and domestic violence victims can often have a hard time talking about their crime. With that in mind, training is underway this week for those who provide care for those victims.

The conference is run through the Methodist hospital SANE/SART program.

Coordinators said these sessions include information not always taught in medical or nursing school.

"They're here to learn how to care for the patient of a sexual assault and domestic violence exam as best that they can, so they learn how to roll the swab correctly, and process collect that evidence, but also medical aspects of the care and things like that," said Anne Boatright, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner.

The SANE/SART program was created 10 years ago.
