Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting
CHILD ABUSE RECOGNITION AND REPORTING (2 CE HOURS)
APPROVED FOR ALL FIELDS REQUIRING THIS MANDATED COURSE (ACT 31)
SPEAKER: DR. MANSOOR MADANI
Five children die every day as a result of child abuse. Child abuse or maltreatment consists of all forms of physical, emotional, sexual abuse, including neglect and exploitation. As dental and medical professionals, we have a responsibility to report any indicators or signs of child abuse. In order to properly comply with the legal mandate for all health professionals to report suspected cases of child maltreatment, healthcare professionals must be aware of their responsibilities. The importance of an early recognition is crucial to effective intervention. All members of the healthcare team have a unique opportunity and legal obligation to assist in identifying and reporting child abuse. This course will fulfill the 2 hour training requirement to renew your dental license as well as all other Pennsylvania State Board health related licensees.
Course Goals and Learning Objectives:
- Understand the role, rights, and responsibilities of mandated & permissive reporters
