Hello colleagues! I hope you all are faring well enough during these strange and stressful times......so grateful for technology!!
I am in a new position in a CAC and have been "given" an LPN to work with me on child medical evaluation. She is a bright and eager co-worker who just earned her LPN within the past 8 months; currently trying to get into an RN program. I am excited to guide her into the world of providing care to our kiddos in this unique environment!
My question: do you know of any online resources or books I should consider that would be skill/education appropriate to help me educate her on child medical exams (physical and sexual)? I am confident in what I can teach her as a mentor and have trained SANEs and been involved in training non-forensic nurses/aids in evidence collections, basic forensic awareness. I am beginning my search for resources for her and was hoping you all might have some ideas. She will not be doing evidence collection. Also, any tips/advice/concerns are welcome for discussion!
Thank you for reading and considering!!
