Child Abuse

Pediatric Skull Fracture — Is Skeletal Survey Indicated?

An interesting article in Medscape for all of my pediatrics people out there: Pediatric Skull Fracture–Is Skeletal Survey Indicated? It’s a summary of a study published earlier this year in the Journal of Pediatrics, and because in our testimony workshop today we were discussing the importance of staying current with the science, this is a good example of what’s available to make that process easier.

Medscape also has a couple other child abuse-related articles recently published, including a research summary on a recent study on sentinel injuries that may indicate abuse in infants and one looking at the limited success of child abuse prevention programs. As always, Medscape is free to access, but requires registration.
