Thanks to a grant from the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, the California Medical Association’s Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) is offering a free course on child abuse prevention, recognition and reporting. The course is designed for California physicians, nurses and other health care professionals who regularly or occasionally treat pediatric patients.

Physicians and other health care professionals are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse and neglect. This course, produced by the Child Abuse Prevention Center in Sacramento, will help providers understand their reporting obligations and how to recognize the signs and symptoms of child abuse and neglect. It has been approved for 1.25 CME credits.

Nurses, social workers and other health care professionals are encouraged to take advantage of the free training as well. The course is also approved for nursing continuing education units or a completion certificate for other health care professionals.
