Summary:

Child abuse and neglect is widespread, and it’s associated with a variety of psychosocial problems. While federal law broadly defines child abuse, each state is charged with refining and specifying what constitutes child abuse and outlining report and investigation procedures. A biopsychosocial assessment can provide the background knowledge needed to create a plan for treatment. Professionals should pay attention to indicators of abuse during assessment of child abuse. The Iowa Code defines categories of mandatory reporters who are required to report cases of suspected child abuse. The Iowa Department of Human Services outlines procedures for these reports. IDHS staff members assess the level of risk to the child and make recommendations for action to ensure the safety and well-being of the child. Practitioners may be involved with intervention activities.

Objectives:

This continuing education module is designed to provide nurses, physicians, social workers, psychologists, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, athletic trainers, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, pharmacy techs, certified medical assistants, and emergency medical technicians and paramedics with an overview of the requirements and procedures for reporting cases of child abuse in Iowa. After completing this course, you will be able to:
  • Define the meaning of child abuse according to Iowa Code Section 232.68(2)
  • Describe the physical and behavioral indicators of child abuse
  • List the individual, family, and social risk factors associated with child maltreatment
