Forensic Nursing Network wanted to share some wonderful work from the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence (OAESV):

COVID-19 has forced us to completely change the way we approach both our advocacy and prevention efforts. However, we are all aware that sexual violence does not stop, even as it seems our world has to some degree.

To ensure we are still connecting to survivors with a trauma-informed lens, OAESV has created a hospital advocacy video that Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners and other medical professionals can show survivors when they present at the ED, since most of our advocacy programs are currently offering tele-advocacy services. We want to be very clear; this video is in no way meant to replace advocates, or hospital advocacy, but instead will provide a more personable look into advocacy by detailing what programs can offer survivors. We want survivors to see a friendly face, the face of advocates in Ohio.


Please feel free to share with your local hospital partners, or even use this as a template to create your own videos.
