Description

Each year in the United States more than 3 million referrals are made to child protective services (CPS) involving more than 6 million children. Of those referrals which are investigated, between 15 to 20 percent involve allegations of physical abuse. Deaths from abuse and neglect occur most commonly in children less than 4 years of age, which highlights the importance of recognition of abuse by pediatricians in this age group.

Join us as Emily Killough, MD, discusses the diagnosis and evaluation of child abuse and a new mobile app to aid medical providers in the recognition of abuse.
