Child Abuse Evaluation Guidelines

In the Summer of 2007 the American Academy of Pediatrics issued guidelines for accurately evaluating and diagnosing children appearing to have been physically abused. While this information is not new per se, Medscape is still offering a CE unit on the guidelines (for nurses and physicians), valid until June 10, 2009.

Physicians can receive up to 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 credits (Family Physicians up to 0.25 AAFP Prescribed credits); nurses receive 0.25 CEUs. It is in an article-posttest format, and is free once you have registered on the site.

I couldn’t find this evaluation tool – the evaluation tool that I did find was for members only. Can you give a more specific web site? Thanks, I really appreciate your web site.
