Physical abuse and neglect are the most common forms of child maltreatment, and professionals who work with children have a duty to possess a thorough understanding of them in order to identify and intervene in abusive situations. This curriculum teaches participants eight lessons on the socioeconomic and familial factors that place children at risk, the signs indicative of abuse and neglect, and methods for medically evaluating and treating physically abused or neglected children. Among the issues discussed in detail are types of radiological studies and their uses, types of common fractures and how they are produced, the ways to differentiate between abusive and accidental head injury, and the distinction between intentional and unintentional neglect. The CD-ROM contains 208 clinical photographs illustrative of common injuries, diagnostic imaging methods, and forms of neglect. The training curriculum contains activities, test questions, photographic references, and a PowerPoint teaching presentation and is accredited through Saint Louis University's School of Medicine and School of Nursing to provide CME/CNE credit(s).
