SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) Program

In the spring of 2016 a request for proposals was issued by the NS Government to expand Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner services in the Western and Eastern Health Zones. Every Woman’s Centre under the direction of Louis Smith-MacDonald submitted a successful proposal for the expansion program. The ongoing mission of the SANE Program is to provide a community-based model to improve the response to sexualized violence within the Eastern Health Zone.
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs) are registered nurses who have completed specialized education and clinical preparation in medical forensic care for patients who have experienced sexual assault or abuse. On-call SANE nurses provide immediate care within 5 days of a sexual assault to people who would like supportive care, including medical attention, information about resources, as well as the option to have forensic evidence collected.
