Attend a Webinar to Learn About the Role of Medical Evaluations in Child Sexual Abuse Cases
Join the Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Center for the webinar, “Medical Evaluation of Child Sexual Abuse: Why Can’t We Be More Like CSI?” on Thursday, October 10 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. CT. This presentation is designed for both medical and non-medical child abuse professionals. During the presentation, participants will explore the following topics:
- The roles physicians and nurses play in evaluating suspected sexual abuse cases and how their specialized training is essential to such cases regardless of level and experience;
- The process of performing examinations, interpreting findings, and collecting DNA and other laboratory samples; and
- The “normal” status of many exams and why that does not discount a child’s disclosure of experiencing sexual abuse.
Participants will hear from Dr. Karen Farst, child abuse pediatrician, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Center for Children at Risk and Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
Register for the webinar today.
