Presented by The Kempe Center for the Prevention & Treatment of Child Abuse & Neglect
Faculty for this two-day intensive training include child abuse, community pediatric, nursing and behavioral health experts.
This conference combines clinical presentations, as well as reviews of available evidence for current practice strategies related to physical abuse (abusive head trauma, fractures, bruises/burns, neglect, medical child abuse), sexual abuse (exam techniques, physical findings, sexually transmitted infections outcomes/therapy, disclosure process, forensic evidence collection) and behavioral health (screening and the impact of trauma to the brain). The conference will be of interest to physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses. Attendees will be able to apply evidence-based practices in their work setting and diagnose common child maltreatment associated conditions.
Upon completion of this educational program, providers will be able to:
- Accurately screen for occult injuries and diagnose physical abuse through case-based learning.
- Demonstrate appropriate use of forensic evidence collection kit in the assessment of child sexual abuse.
- Design an appropriate treatment plan for a child with a positive behavioral health screen.
