Handbook - National Action Programme for the Health Care and Medical Services’ Reception and Care of Victims of Sexual Assault
The purpose of the programme is to improve the health care and medical services?’ reception and care of victims of sex crimes. A further purpose is to develop routines for how medical samples should be taken and documentation carried out in order to provide the judicial system with as complete and expedient a basis for decisions as possible. It is important for health care staff to possess knowledge about how the question is best put to patients who may have been subjected to sexual violence. The national programme
should include recommendations for how these questions should be asked and how the responses should be handled.
