Child Abuse

Pediatric Burns

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has a streaming Grand Rounds webcast available: Burns in Pediatrics–Abuse, Accident or Outlier? It’s available free of charge, but requires registration with the site. Unfortunately, this one is also CMEs only, but is certainly relevant for clinicians across the board. (I’m working on finding some new relevant nursing CEs, but there are a lot less of those, sorry.)

Seminar objectives:

  1. Discuss historical and physical exam characteristics of inflicted and accidental burning.
  2. Give examples of injuries that appear to be, but are not, thermal burns.
  3. Know the most commonly inflicted burn, and the overall percent of burns which are inflicted.
