Project ECHO: Child Abuse & Neglect

Project ECHO logoPrimary care providers, healthcare professionals and community partners are invited to participate in a 7-session child abuse and neglect series. These learning sessions will improve participants’ knowledge of diagnosing and treating child physical and sexual abuse, as well as providing ongoing care for these children and families. Sessions start November 4, 2019, and run through February 2020.

The Need to Address Child Abuse & Neglect in Nebraska

  • Child abuse is more prevalent than cancer, diabetes or heart disease, yet most physicians feel that they are ill-equipped to diagnose and treat abuse in their office setting.
  • Primary care physicians are uniquely positioned to identify and respond to abuse.
  • Child abuse and neglect can have life-long consequences: Individuals who reported six or more adverse childhood experiences had an average life expectancy two decades shorter than those who reported none.

Benefits for Participants

  • Access to up-to-date guidelines on child physical and sexual abuse diagnosis and treatment
  • Become part of a community of practice and learning
  • Network with other health care professionals and community partners
  • Attend sessions from any location using videoconferencing technology (ZOOM)
  • Submit de-identified cases for review and discussion
