      Authors: Langness; Mel; Zweig, Janine M.; Tiry, Emily; Henderson, Erica; Stahlmann, Nicole; Bastomski, Sara
      Abstract: imageThe National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations, Adult/Adolescent, 2nd edition, or SAFE Protocol, is a voluntary guide that assists local and state jurisdictions with their responses to sexual assault by institutionalizing best practices around survivor care and evidence collection, particularly for sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs) completing medical forensic examinations. We examined the uptake of the SAFE Protocol in communities across the United States by analyzing data from a set of national surveys of forensic nursing programs and victim advocates within the same communities. We studied four implementation outcomes: the acceptability, adoption, reach, and sustainability of the SAFE Protocol. SANEs and advocates reported that stakeholders responding to sexual assault—including forensic nurses, advocates, law enforcement, and prosecutors—have high implementation of the Protocol, which indicates how important individual stakeholder engagement is in actively facilitating the adoption of it. However, when information from SANEs and advocates from the same community are compared, the extent to which the SAFE Protocol is reported to be implemented with fidelity across U.S. jurisdictions is mixed.

      Abstract: imageSexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs) play a critical role in providing quality care to patients who have experienced sexual violence. Recent national legislative initiatives have been launched both to better explore state-specific needs in regard to training SANE nurses as well as pilot programs that will establish evidence-based methods of expanding SANE training to remote, rural, and underserved communities.

  • Trauma-Informed Approaches to Medicolegal Death Investigation: A Forensic
           Nursing Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Drake; Stacy A.; Burton, Candace
      Abstract: Forensic nurses engaged in medicolegal death investigations experience trauma-induced responses in responding to, investigating, and documenting sudden unexpected deaths. The trauma of these repeated experiences often results in diminished performance, job dissatisfaction, and burnout. The principles of trauma-informed care are not new but have not been incorporated into death investigation practices. When coupled with medicolegal death investigation procedures, application of these principles can help to alleviate distress for forensic nurses, colleagues, and decedents of concerned families. This case series illustrates how the principles of trauma-informed care can be implemented to enhance communication, deescalate emotional or threatening situations, and prevent retraumatization in the context of medicolegal death investigations.

  • Pragmatic Randomized Control Trial of a Coordinated Community Response:
           Increasing Access to Services for At-Risk Older Adults

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maxwell; Christopher D.; Rodgers, Kourtnie; Pickering, Carolyn E. Z.
      Abstract: imageBackground Elder abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation (EANF) impacts over five million community-dwelling older adults. Yet, no evidence-based intervention models exist that prevent EANF.Objectives In this article, we describe the assessment of process outcomes for a Community Complex Care Response Team (C3RT) model developed, via a practitioner–researcher partnership, to reduce instances of EANF victimization among higher risk community-dwelling older adults by identifying and coordinating their service needs. Specifically, we evaluated whether this C3RT approach produced more service coordination among providers (measured as documented interagency communications), more referrals for services, and more enrollment in services.Methods A pragmatic randomized control trial using a 1:1 randomization scheme allocated participants to either the C3RT intervention (N = 74) or standard practice (N = 72) group offered by a local Area Agency on Aging. Outcome data were extracted from the participants' administrative service records.Results The participants assigned to C3RT had significantly more interagency communications and services provided (p < 0.05) than those in standard practice.Conclusions Communications and services increased across a broad range of multidisciplinary services, which attend to the social determinants of health. This study is the first to use objective outcome measures to evaluate the processes of a coordinated community response approach systematically.

           Difficulties in Supporting Offenders With Mental Disorders Under the
           Medical Treatment and Supervision Act in Japan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Okuda; Jun; Endo, Yoshimi
      Abstract: imageObjective This study aimed to identify the strategies used by forensic community mental health nurses to resolve difficulties in supporting offenders with mental disorders under the Medical Treatment and Supervision Act in Japan.Method Interviews were conducted with 13 nurses, and the data were analyzed using content analysis.Results The study identified the strategies for difficulties in (a) assessing and managing risk potential of forensic service patients, (b) addressing offending behavior, (c) managing the transition of patients, (d) supporting patients to understand the impact of justice processes and applying knowledge of legislation to nursing, and (e) promoting the role of forensic community mental health nurses within the multidisciplinary team.Conclusions The findings can benefit and support forensic community mental health nurses' practices. The Japanese forensic community mental health nurses experiencing difficulties and providing home visits to patients can utilize the identified strategies.

  • Effects of an Emotional Education Program on Prisoners: An Experimental

      Authors: Martín-Cocinas Fernández; Ma. Carmen; Gómez-Díaz, Magdalena; Gómez-Sánchez, Rosario; Conesa-Fuentes, Ma. Carmen; Díaz-Agea, José Luis; Leal-Costa, César
      Abstract: imageBackground Emotional education has beneficial effects on physical and/or emotional health, resulting in a better quality of life. Thus, it is beneficial to provide prisoners with emotional education, because of the difficulties they often have, to attain these benefits.Purpose The aim of the study was to analyze the effects of a nursing intervention program in emotional education for incarcerated persons.Methods Experimental study with pretest–posttest repeated measures with a control group was conducted at a penitentiary center in the southeast of Spain. Forty-eight prisoners participated in the emotional education intervention program, and another 48 were part of the control group. The emotional intelligence questionnaire 24-item Trait Meta-Mood Scale, the resilience scale Connor–Davidson Resilience Scale, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, the Rathus Assertiveness Questionnaire, and the 36-item Short Form Health Survey were utilized.Findings The intragroup, preintervention and postintervention comparisons in the study group showed improvements in self-esteem (p = 0.00, r = 0.51), resilience (p = 0.00, r = 0.42), assertiveness (p = 0.00, r = 0.46), and emotional intelligence in its dimensions of repair (p = 0.00, r = 0.32) and clarity (p = 0.02, r = 0.22) as well as in most of the quality of life dimensions. Significant intergroup differences were also found in all of these variables, except for attention and emotional clarity dimensions.Conclusion The intervention improved the socioemotional health and quality of life of the prisoners, highlighting the importance of these interventions to be performed by the nursing personnel on a regular basis as a programmed activity within prisons.

  • Intimate Partner Femicide in South Korea: An Integrative Review of the
           Literature

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kim; Soojeong; Park, Sihyun; Champion, Jane Dimmitt
      Abstract: imageBackground Intimate partner femicide (IPF) is a severe form of violence perpetrated against women in intimate relationships. The purpose of this integrative literature review was to identify studies of IPF in South Korea.Methods A web-based literature search was performed in six databases: PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO, MEDLINE, SocINDEX, and RISS (Korean academic online database). Because of the limited number of findings, Google Scholar was used to find additional studies.Results Nine articles were selected. There were no studies of IPF in South Korea utilizing a healthcare perspective. The studies were primarily designed to understand the characteristics of the cases and the perpetrators. Through the application of the ecological model to these studies, risk factors at the individual, relationship, community, and societal levels were identified. Although these studies identified that risk factors at the societal level—Korean culture, policy, and law—have a considerable influence on femicide, a clear solution is not proposed.Conclusion It is imperative to understand IPF in South Korea from a female societal perspective to facilitate violence prevention and recovery for those experiencing intimate partner violence.

      Authors: Singh Sonwani; Nagendra; Ateriya, Navneet; Kumar Verma, Satish; Kumar Aggarwal, Narinder
      Abstract: imageSuicide is a common manner of death typically carried out via a specific mechanism. When a suicidal act is committed using more than one method, it is called a complex suicide. A complex suicide can be divided into planned and unplanned. We present three cases of complex suicide in which multiple methods were used and a previous history of self-harm was present. This case series highlights the significance of a detailed medicolegal death investigation, including interviews with relatives and other witnesses, and a thorough forensic autopsy/toxicological analysis to ascertain the cause and manner of death.

  • Perceptions of Gender Violence in Spanish Adolescents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rodríguez-Borrego; María Aurora; Rodríguez-Muñoz, Pedro Manuel; López-Soto, Pablo Jesús; Carmona-Torres, Juan Manuel
      Abstract: imageBackground Gender violence among adolescents is a global problem. In the context of public healthcare, nursing professionals play an important role.Objective The aim of this study was to determine awareness, information, and beliefs regarding gender violence in adolescents and identify their educational needs.Participants and Setting Data from a study conducted by the Spanish Centre for Sociological Research and the Government Office for Gender Violence in 2013 are used. The sample contained 698 adolescents aged 15–19 years.Methods This is a secondary analysis of a data survey. Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology guidelines are followed. Sociodemographic variables and seven topics of interest were analyzed: gender inequality, intimate relationships, definition of abuse, identification of abuse, awareness of cases of abuse in women, and informal and formal support networks.Results The results show that adolescents are well informed, are aware of informal and formal support networks, use the word “respect,” identify abuse and consider it unacceptable, and believe media coverage is useful in giving visibility to gender violence. No significant differences were found in gender, social class, or education, and their idea of romantic love remains intact.Conclusions The researchers conclude that, in Spain, adolescents' awareness of gender violence is strongly influenced by environmental and cultural factors, because of the prevalence of gender and intimate partner violence in the country. Formal interventions such as health education provided by either nursing professionals in schools or the broader community can have a positive effect on adolescent health. Primary care nurses should use these findings to support the development of health promotion programs for young adults.
