In the U.S., child abuse and neglect remain growing problems. Healthcare and other professionals are uniquely positioned to identify child abuse and neglect. Early recognition often leads to intervention and support that can reduce further incidents. The goal of this course is to update Health Educators, Certified Medical Assistants, Nursing Professionals, Occupational Therapists, and Social Workers to identify, assess, and report victims of child abuse and neglect.
