Child abuse and neglect results in five deaths every day in the United States. Unfortunately, abuse can go unrecognized in emergency departments and schools. And abuse is under-reported, often because staff isn't properly trained or has misconceptions about victims and abusers. Make sure you know all the facts to help you consistently identify child abuse and neglect -- and initiate appropriate interventions to ensure the child's welfare and safety.
In this 1-hour audioconference, topic expert Dianne Ditmer, PhD, RN, CFN, DABFN, SANE, FACFE, will review what all healthcare professionals and educators must know to spot child abuse. You'll walk away with an enhanced awareness of risk factors, as well as tools to integrate medical-forensic examinations into pediatric assessments, and interviewing strategies for early identification.
