Pediatric Collections: Child Abuse: Overview and Evaluation

When child abuse or neglect concerns present to the provider and “enters the medical home,” the initial responses might very well be a complex combination of fear, denial, and decision paralysis. Even the most experienced pediatrician might feel, “Never. Not this parent”; or maybe judge, “Of course, this family…”; or question, “What do I do now?”. This small and important collection of American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) publications and reports provides guidance and support to the medical home providers.
