Sexual Assault Quick Reference is a must-have reference for new SANEs to assist in their assessments, nursing diagnoses, and documentation. Chapter 5, “Differential Diagnosis,” is comprehensive in identifying common normal variants and disease processes that mimic injuries seen in sexual abuse. I recommend this textbook for course coordinators when developing SANE-A/SANE-P course curricula as it covers a wide variety of subjects that should be taught in any SANE curriculum. The Quick Reference is also an excellent guide to SANE program coordinators to reference when developing polices, protocols, or guidelines for their institutions. All health care personnel would benefit from this textbook as it provides the most up-to-date material when working with victims of sexual violence.

This textbook would be a valuable reference for any professional or agency that provides services to sexual assault or sexual abuse survivors of any age. The chapters are written by experts in forensic medicine, forensic nursing, forensic DNA analysis, social work, and other specialties relevant to working with victims of sexual assault or sexual exploitation. Chapters include the basic legal definitions of sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual exploitation; differentiating abuse/assault injuries from nonabuse/nonassault injuries or disease process in a victim of any age; how to form and manage a multidisciplinary team; what to include in the forensic medical report and who will view that report; the chain of custody, combined DNA index system, DNA evidence, and collecting reference samples; sexual assault by an acquaintance or intimate partner and the heavy emotional burden it places on the victim; and issues unique to elder victims living in residential care facilities or when in-home caregivers are suspects.

The second edition of Sexual Assault Quick Reference is an excellent resource for all health care providers who see victims of sexual violence. In particular, Chapters 15-21 provide a wealth of new information on topics essential to victim care. Chapter 18, “Sexual Assault Response in the United States Military,” is a practical read for those unfamiliar with the military and how its legal system works. Chapter 20, “Strangulation in Living Patients,” is nothing short of amazing with its color photos and precise breakdown of patient assessment, forensic photography, and signs and symptoms of strangulation that require further investigation and evaluation. I highly recommend this second edition as a go-to resource for professionals who respond to and care for victims of sexual assault.
