Child Abuse Sexual Assault

Recognizing Child Abuse

Medscape has a new slideshow available: Recognizing Child Abuse. It’s free to access (registration is required, also free) and would make another fantastic continuing education presentation for your team. The slideshow includes multiple annotated injury photos, films and recent stats, but it’s still brief enough to review during a staff meeting or inservice (there are 25 slides total). Child sexual abuse is also addressed, albeit briefly.

It’s certainly not the most comprehensive presentation on the topic, but it’s a nice overview. I’ll look forward to hearing your opinions…
