The Child Abuse Summit: Tips from the Team is designed to provide medical and professionals from all disciplines with the knowledge, tools, and skills needed to properly identify and respond to all types of child and family maltreatment including physical abuse, sexual abuse, and/or neglect. These professionals will have the opportunity to learn about child and family maltreatment within the context of a multidisciplinary team response.

The anticipated audience for this activity includes physicians, nurses, pathologists, law enforcement, attorneys, social workers, CPS workers, emergency department personnel and first responders, and all other related professionals. We estimate that approximately 300 professionals will attend this summit.
