This report presents the six basic steps for evaluating a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program as they are presented in the SANE Practitioner Evaluation Toolkit.
The focus of this Toolkit is the impact of SANE programs on the progression of sexual assault cases through the criminal justice system, meaning how many cases make it how far through the system. To that end, the Toolkit is designed to provide practitioners with the necessary information for understanding and evaluating SANE programs' impact on prosecution rates in their own community.
