From The CriticsReviewer: Anna L. Jarrett, PhD, ACNP-ACNS,(University of Arkansas)
Description: This is a comprehensive resource for clinicians and medical professionals to guide them in caring for persons suffering sexual assault.
Purpose: The purpose appears in the subtitle - the book is "a resource for clinicians and related professionals." The book exceeds the authors' objectives and my expectations.
Audience: In addition to the audience of clinicians, the related professionals include medical, law enforcement, legal, and social service professionals. This book should be included in graduate nursing curricula for acute care, family, and women's health practitioners. The authors are well credentialed with clinical expertise in providing proper care for victims of adult sexual assault.
Features: The book covers a broad span of topics including the history of sexual assault nurse examiners; basic anatomy and physiology; male, female, and elder sexual abuse; sexual homicide; sexual assault response in the military and on college campuses; and the proper collection of evidence.
Assessment: This is an outstanding, comprehensive book that needs to be required reading for emergency department nurses, midlevel practitioners, and emergency room and family practice physicians, as well as law enforcement, legal, and social services professionals.
