The Hawai‘i Pacific Health Research Institute (HPHRI) is dedicated to expanding our knowledge and investigation of the most advanced methods of health prevention in Hawai‘i. HPHRI researchers conduct more than 200 clinical trials within the Hawai‘i Pacific Health network of hospitals — Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women & Children, Pali Momi Medical Center, Straub Medical Center and Wilcox Medical Center. The Institute oversees an impressive array of research projects, covering areas such as oncology, cardiology, emergency medicine and neonatology. It manages a multi-million dollar budget and a dedicated staff that includes more than 25 clinical research coordinators and up to 75 physicians. Our studies assure patient safety in all aspects of research as they break new ground in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
The Sex Abuse Treatment Center (SATC) of the Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children is a statewide program established in 1976 in response to the community’s concern over the absence of medical, psychological and legal support services for victims and the absence of police reporting. Today it is recognized for its leadership and expertise in providing treatment services for survivors of sexual assault, preventing sexual violence and effecting change through public policy, awareness and education. Our mission is to support the emotional healing process of those sexually assaulted in Hawai‘i, to increase community awareness about their needs and to reduce the incidence of all forms of sexual assault. Through research and education we also aim to improve clinical practices. By promoting and engaging in public policy we are changing public perceptions of sexual violence, overcoming barriers to treatment and prevention, and ensuring effective criminal justice practices.
As a Crisis Worker Trainee, you will go through a comprehensive training program made up of both didactic and on the job training to prepare you for the role of Crisis Worker for the Sex Abuse Treatment Center (SATC). Crisis Workers provide compassionate, front-line intervention and support services to adults and youth who have been sexually assaulted. This includes providing crisis support to sexual assault victims and their families both in person and over the phone; assisting individuals with reporting to the police if appropriate; and coordinating the acute forensic examination. Crisis Workers team with SATC physicians in the provision of medical-legal services which address the medical concerns of survivors following victimization and includes the collection and preservation of medical-legal evidence. Upon successful completion of the training program, trainees will transition into the Crisis Worker position and become an important part of a system of care for victims. If you have strong interpersonal skills, an empathic personality, and believe in the mission of the Sex Abuse Treatment Center, we encourage you to apply!
