Improve your medical evaluation skills and obtain continuing education credit through a course sponsored by the University of California, San Diego, entitled "Medical Evaluation of Suspected Child Sexual Abuse: An Introductory Course," available in a CD-ROM format.
The course was created by Joyce A. Adams, MD, and Nancy Kellogg, MD, and was designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses who perform genital and anal examinations of children who may have been sexually abused. It covers, in a detailed fashion, specific physical characteristics of children who have been sexually abused.
People considering taking the course can get more information at a website, including biographical information on the course's authors. There they can also take a "pretest" to assess their current understanding of the subject, find other information about the course, and can register to receive the CD-ROM, which contains the course.
