Abstract

A random sample of representatives from Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) programs throughout the United States were contacted to participate in in-depth telephone interviews about program operations and services for sexual assault patients. Programs that had been in operation 5 years or less at the time of this study are compared to older programs to examine trends.
