Brief Overview: A child abuse pediatrician will review the considerations for the MDT, medical, mental health, forensic interview and victim advocate response that a CAC-MDT should consider when evaluating expansion of service to include child physical abuse. The presentation will discuss the role of the medical provider on the MDT, and will present an overview on the specifics of the medical response to suspected physical abuse including recognition of red flag indicators of physical abuse (such as patterned and sentinel injuries) and evaluation of potentially abusive injuries.
