Childhood Physical Abuse – PediaCast CME 030

Show Notes / Continuing Medical Education Information

DESCRIPTION
This week we consider childhood physical abuse. We’ll explore the scope of the problem (as many as 95% of cases go unreported!), risk factors for families, “red flags” in the history and physical exam, medical work-up when abuse is suspected, effective reporting to child protection agencies and supporting kids and families through the process. We hope you can join us!
