This webinar will be a dynamic, interactive, image-heavy presentation of common and not-so-common findings during pediatric sexual assault exams. As many SANEs may not have the opportunity to see large numbers of children, the goal of this presentation is to increase confidence in performing these exams. Discussions will include evidence-based interpretation and documentation of findings.
