Following the success of and immensely positive feedback to the original G.W. Medical volume Nursing Approach to the Evaluation of Child Maltreatment, the need for its integration into a curriculum for continuing education was apparent. Created from the most relevant information from the original text, Nursing Approach to Child Maltreatment: A Training Curriculum features ten topical chapters meant to familiarize learners with the common forms of child maltreatment in nursing settings. The training curriculum contains activities, text questions, photographic references, and a PowerPoint teaching presentation and is accredited through Saint Louis University's School of Nursing for CNE credit.
This educational curriculum, dedicated to training nurses and other medical professionals who work with children in the evaluation and interpretation of potential child maltreatment cases, is ideal for those who wish to understand the typical symptoms and presentation of abuse cases. The ten chapters of Nursing Approach to Child Maltreatment: A Training Curriculum cover a comprehensive list of common conditions encountered by nurses working within this context from physical examinations, diagnostic procedures, intimate partner violence, mental health aspects, and more.
