Suspected Physical Child Abuse Podcasts

Physical child abuse is an important cause of pediatric morbidity and mortality and is associated with major physical and mental health problems that can extend into adulthood. The most common abusive injuries include bruises, burns, fractures, and head injuries. Recognition and appropriate management of physical maltreatment by emergency department providers is critical, as the emergency department may be the first and/or only medical contact for the child.
