dc.description.abstract To address the under-reporting and under-prosecution of adult sexual assaults, communities throughout the United States have implemented multidisciplinary interventions to improve post-assault care for victims and the criminal justice system response. One such model is the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program whereby specially trained nurses provide comprehensive psychological, medical, and forensic services for sexual assault… Campbell and colleagues (2009) developed a practitioner-oriented evaluation toolkit as part of a previous NIJ-funded research study on how SANE programs affect the criminal justice system case outcomes…The purpose of this project was to conduct an implementation evaluation of the SANE Practitioner Evaluation Toolkit. We selected six SANE programs (two rural, tow mid-sized, and two urban) and provided comprehensive technical assistance to help these programs work through the steps in the Toolkit so that they could evaluation whether their programs were having a beneficial impact on prosecution rates…None of the sites had a statistically significant increase in prosecution rates pre-SANE to post-SANE. However, when the data were aggregated across sites, thereby increasing statistical power, there was a significant effect such that cases processed post-SANE implementation were 80% more likely to attain a higher level of disposition as compared to cases processed pre-SANE. These findings suggest that the SANE intervention model does have positive impact on sexual assault case progression in the criminal justice system.
