Child Abuse Medical Evaluations in the 21st Century: An Innovative Approach (Workshop 115)
Illinois has established a landmark program to ensure that children receive timely and competent medical evaluations in response to allegations of physical abuse and neglect: the Multidisciplinary Pediatric Evaluation and Education Consortium (MPEEC). This workshop highlights the successes and barriers experienced by the MPEEC program during its first pilot year. Attention focuses on the role of the physician in the diagnosis of child abuse and neglect and the importance of effective multidisciplinary collaboration in response to allegations of physical abuse and neglect.
