I had a reader request for a foundational child abuse webinar to view with a diverse group of hospital-based healthcare providers. The Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Centers has multiple archived webinars available, including this one, presented by Dr. Carole Jenny earlier in the year, Medical Child Abuse and Medical Neglect: A Spectrum of Parent Behavior. Bonus: CMEs are available for this session (although nursing CEUs are not). Click through for details:
From the site:
This presentation will examine medical child abuse and medical neglect, the two ends of a spectrum of parents’ manner of interacting with the medical care system. Topics include definitions of medical child abuse and medical neglect, diagnosing them, and treating them.
1. Participants will understand the definition of medical child abuse and medical neglect.
2. Participants will know how to diagnose medical child abuse and medical neglect.
3. Participants will learn the spectrum of options available in the treatment of medical child abuse and medical neglect.
