International Webinar Series: The Role of the Health Sector in the Identification and Referral of Child Abuse Cases
June 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MDT
Child abuse and neglect is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in childhood, especially in the first years of the life. Identification of children who are abused, neglected, or at risk of being abused or neglected is a crucial step in child protection–and one that is particularly critical for health care providers, who often are the first ones to interact with these children and families. Management of these cases needs multidisciplinary collaboration; therefore, the referral of abused children for therapy, long-term follow-up, and protection is the next step in ensuring their well being. In this webinar, ISPCAN Councilor Figen Sahin Dagli will discuss these topics and share her experience as a professor of pediatrics and one of the pioneers in founding and directing a child protection center in her university in Turkey.
