Evaluation and Management of the Sexually Assaulted or Sexually Abused Patient 2nd Edition

Since the first production of this handbook in 1999, the American College of Emergency Physicians created the Forensic Medicine Section. One of the goals of the section was to revise and update this handbook. In 2011, the Forensic Medicine Section was awarded an ACEP Section Grant to accomplish this goal.

To minimize unnecessary variations in care, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), in concert with a broad range of clinical, legal, forensic, judicial, advocate, and other organizations, has developed the following consensus approach to assist in the care of the patient presenting to the Emergency Department following sexual assault or sexual abuse.
