Sexual Assault Forensics

Forensic Nurse Specialist

While fulfilling her final year at California State University, Long Beach in 2006. Dr. Benson, with the help of Dr. Carolyn Sachs of Forensic Nurse Specialists, Inc. began their research in sexual assault to ascertain how consistent our examiners were in determining acute genital injury after sexual assault. During this study they learned about the group of examiners, about their use of terminology (or lack thereof), and about how to improve the design of the next reliability study. To learn more about her research in the field you can review her findings at Forensic Nursing Research.
