This article describes the process of creating and empirically validating a practitioner-oriented, step-by-step evaluation toolkit that can be used in Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) programs, and it presents the toolkit itself.
This article also provides recommendations regarding program readiness to engage in evaluation activities, without compromising program sustainability and patient care. The toolkit can be used by SANE-A and SANE-P programs and their community partners in order to examine sexual assault prosecution rates in their local jurisdictions. Resources available to practitioners on the nature and use of the toolkit are provided. (Publisher abstract modified)
