Cardon Children's to host child abuse seminar
MESA, Ariz. (March 29, 2011) – Cardon Children’s Medical Center will host an educational seminar on April 16 to discuss the medical and legal implications of child abuse.
Topics will include neurological and orthopedic effects of child abuse, the mandatory reporting and legal processes required by professionals in child abuse cases, and a step-by-step analysis of an actual case study.
The seminar is geared toward physicians, nurses, social workers, law enforcement and any other professionals who work with children.
Norman Saba, MD, pediatric chief of staff at Cardon Children’s, said the seminar is critical during a time when child abuse is on the rise.
“Anyone who works with children should know what to look for and how to handle the situation in the unfortunate event of child abuse,” Saba said. “We want to ensure that our children have the best care possible.”
