CE Course Description

Experts contend that current approaches have not been successful in eliminating child abuse and neglect fatalities. The purpose of this intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the Commission to Eliminate Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities, is to provide a set of recommendations that incorporate a public health approach to child safety in order to engage a broad spectrum of community agencies and systems to identify, test, and evaluate strategies to prevent harm to children.  The course summarizes how organizations, communities, and priorities can be realigned to identify and support children at highest risk of abuse or neglect fatality.
