Summary:

Healthcare professionals play an important part in helping to end children’s suffering by recognizing and reporting suspected child abuse. New York law states that a person applying initially for, or for the renewal of, a license, registration, certificate, or limited permit, must provide documentation that he or she has completed two hours of coursework or training regarding the physical or behavioral indicators of child abuse and maltreatment. Successful completion of this self-study module satisfies this requirement for professional licensure. This updated CE module provides information about differentiating between accidental and intentional injury, definitions of abuse and neglect, physical, and behavioral indicators of sexual abuse, and the background information needed to increase their understanding of abuse and the legal requirements to reporting suspected abuse.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to update nurses’, physicians’, social workers’, and psychologists’ ability to identify and report child abuse. The completion of this module satisfies New York State’s two-hour, mandatory training requirement for healthcare professionals on the subject of child abuse.
 
After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss how the history and physical examination of the child can be the key to differentiating between accidental and intentional injury
  • Define what constitutes abuse, maltreatment, and neglect, and identify the corresponding physical and behavioral indicators
  • Identify the information needed to give to Child Protective Services (CPS) when “reasonable cause to suspect abuse” is found and the initial call is reported
  • List the physical and behavioral indicators of sexual abuse
  • Describe what constitutes “reasonable cause to suspect” abuse and identify situations when healthcare professionals must report suspected cases
  • Define the preventive-protective continuum of care used by New York’s CPS and what to do if there is more than one mandated reporter with “reasonable cause to suspect” abuse
  • Describe how emotional abuse can affect children and their developmental growth
