Summary:

About 3.4 million cases of alleged child maltreatment were investigated in 2012. Neglect continues to comprise the largest number of victims, with 78.3% nationwide. Of the children reported, 9.3% were sexually abused, 8.5% were psychologically maltreated and 18.3% were physically abused. Healthcare professionals play an important part in helping to end children’s suffering by recognizing and reporting suspected child abuse. This updated CE module provides the background information needed to increase their understanding about it and also the legal requirements to reporting suspected abuse.

Objectives:

The goal of this 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 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
