Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse for Clinicians

PPA is offering this program as a special activity in connection with our 2017 Annual Conference


This two-hour training is designed to provide clinicians and other medical staff with the knowledge they need to accurately identify suspected child abuse and meet their legal obligation in reporting. The presentation reviews the elements of child abuse including the legal definitions of a child, perpetrator, categories and indicators of abuse. The training provides an overview of mandated reporting obligations including how to make a report, protections for those who report and the liability for failing to report.  Medical indicators of abuse are covered as are conditions that mimic abuse. Case studies are reviewed. This training is eligible for Act 31 credits and is approved by the Departments of Human Services and State.
