Improving the Monitoring of Child Maltreatment (Workshop 33)
There is a pressing need for a practical monitoring system for Child Maltreatment (CM) that can be implemented at the state level. In 2001, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded five states (California, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and Rhode Island) to help determine the utility of various data sources for statewide monitoring. The presentation will feature a summary of each state's progress to date. In particular, emphasis will be placed on developing uniform case definitions, the epidemiology of CM in each state, and lessons learned.
