$20.00 | CE Hours:4.00 | Intermediate
CE Course Description
Due to recent shifts in both the cultural and health care landscape, health care professionals are being asked to work with parents, caregivers, and children to prevent child abuse and neglect, and promote child and family well-being. Therefore, health care professionals should possess insight into how to effectively work with parents, caregivers, and children. This course reviews the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ resource guide centered around child abuse and neglect to build awareness among health care professionals so they may effectively work with parents, caregivers, and children to identify and prevent child abuse and neglect, while promoting child and family well-being.
