The Role of Primary Care Medicine in the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect: The Practicing Safety Project (Workshop 160)
Changing physician behavior requires going beyond continuing education to community-based efforts that focus on system change. The overall goal of the Practicing Safety Project is to increase screening and anticipatory guidance for child maltreatment provided by pediatric practices to parents of children ages 0-3 and thus to decrease child maltreatment. This workshop reviews the efficacy of physician approaches to prevention of abuse and then details the specific intervention components of the Practicing Safety Project.
