OPENPediatrics launches Non-Accidental Trauma Course

OPENPediatrics is pleased to announce the launch of our latest CME accredited course, Non-Accidental Trauma. A recent study reported that health professionals failed to report child abuse in 20% of cases in which the patient's injury was indicative of abuse. This lack of recognition and reporting emphasizes the importance of provider training in recognizing the signs of child abuse and documentation in such situations. The Non-Accidental Trauma course is designed to provide training in the recognition and reporting of physical child abuse and abusive head trauma, as well as discuss the medical documentation of non-accidental trauma. 

Learners have the option to take either a free version of the course through OPENPediatrics' Guided Learning Pathways page or take the CME accredited version of the course. Please note, to access the free version of the course you need to register for a free account on OPENPediatrics first. 

Boston Children's Hospital is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Boston Children's Hospital designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The Non-Accidental Trauma course has also been approved to offer Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2 Credits and risk management credits in the state of Massachusetts.
