Training Overview Description

ACFTA will provide communities with forensically trained nurses and medical providers to respond to any victim reporting trauma and/or violence in Alaska.

  • Each victim of violence deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and to have evidence of the crimes committed against them preserved for future prosecution.
  • Unfortunately, many areas of the state lack the ability to document and collect medical evidence to help protect victims of crime.
  • Forensic evidence collection requires the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to do so from the onset of patient care.
  • ACFTA offers nurses and medical providers, across the state, training to ensure trauma informed care for victims of violence which will ultimately promote justice for all victims in Alaska.
