Child protection webinar series for medical professionals and response teams.
The frequency and severity of physical and sexual abuse and neglect during the COVID response is rising across the world. Schools are likely to be the first to identify and respond. This two-part series addresses the role of medical professionals and the ethical considerations they and school-based response teams navigate in abuse cases.
Healthcare professionals and their supervisors will learn from a child abuse physician about medical myths and realities, signs and indicators of abuse, and how to frame a child-centered, trauma-informed approach. Topics will include questioning, procedures, and documentation of evidence. Note: the question and answer period will not be recorded.
– Learn characteristics of intentional injuries, what lab work to request for sexual assault and victim-centered examination approaches.
– Understand how documentation may be used as evidence and the time limitations of evidence collection.
– Practice question formation for survivors, offending and non-offending caregivers and external medical providers.
– Take a case scenario approach to navigating cultural taboos and traditional practices.
This interactive webinar will last for 60 minutes.
