Description:
This is the third edition of the ‘Recent Rape/Sexual Assault: National Guidelines on Referral and Forensic Clinical Examination in Ireland.’ The purpose of this document is to facilitate all aspects of a responsive and coordinated service for women and men over the age of 14 years who have been raped or sexually assaulted. This revised document includes a number of updates and relevant additions to the various sections, and as such this document replaces the 2nd edition entirely. The interagency nature of these guidelines enables consistent provision of high quality care at all stages of the journey, regardless of the circumstances of the incident or the person’s involvement with criminal justice agencies. This document ensures that clearly defined referral pathways exist, so that women and men can access appropriate individualised care that is responsive to their needs. It is important to highlight that people respond to instances of sexual violence in different ways, and while this document provides guidance for compassionate and effective care, it does not represent the only medically or legally acceptable response. There may be circumstances where personal or clinical factors may mandate appropriate deviation from these guidelines
