Product Description

Normal lumps and bumps or wounds from abuse or neglect? Knowing the difference can be lifesaving for the most vulnerable victims of violence 

Patients. They come to us with acute, traumatic injuries, exacerbated by chronic illness and social issues. Unfortunately, many wounds and injuries go unnoticed due to lack of professional training or inconsistent assessments.

Join Dr. Dianne Ditmer for this heart-wrenching, must-have event where you'll learn how to accurately assess wounds and injuries with a critical eye.

Your attention to detail can help detect and prevent abuse and help other medical personnel, protective services investigators and law enforcement keep victims safe.

Event highlights every care provider should hear:

  • Signs of abuse - which criteria should make you suspicious?
  • 4 types of injuries associated with abuse - do you know how to spot them?
  • How do you identify between blunt force and sharp trauma? And which factors influence the size, shape and evolution of contusions?
  • What is the significance of age, gender, developmental milestones and cultural practices when evaluating injuries?
  • Best practices for documenting wounds with scale, consistent terminology, body maps and more.
  • Top techniques you should use to examine victims with physical disabilities, cognitive impairments, communications limitations or sensory deficits.
  • Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 - how does it come into play when assessing disabled victims?
  • PLUS: What is your legal obligation regarding injuries that indicate abuse and neglect? Protect yourself so you can continue to protect others.

Who should attend? Healthcare providers, nurses, physicians, physician assistants, nursing assistants, clinical lab staff, radiology staff, day care providers, educators, counselors, first responders,  paramedics, EMT's, school nurses, social workers
