Description of training module

As a medical specialist, you may come into contact with a child who has skin lesions as a result of child abuse. Determining whether a skin lesion is actually the result of a consciously inflicted injury is a complicated task.

This course given in the English language can help you to recognize patterns and characteristics of consciously inflicted skin lesions and suspicious circumstances. In addition, during the course you can practise the screening questions once more, this time specifically aimed at skin lesions.

The course begins with a brief summary of the general course on child abuse and the tools which you can use for detecting abuse. Then you will learn about skin lesions which are related to child abuse. Next, you will learn about the differential diagnosis which is used for skin lesions.

The fourth chapter is about the specific patterns which you can recognize in the case of skin lesions resulting from child abuse. The course is rounded off with a test.
