One of our key partners is the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN), a network organization that links professionals in almost 100 countries in tackling child abuse. ISPCAN and Augeo Academy have developed a number of courses with the assistance of international experts. These courses include Multidisciplinary Teams in the Field of Child Abuse and Neglect and The Importance of Medicine in Evaluating Child Sexual Abuse.
THE KINDERKLINIEKEN IN THE WESER-EMS REGION IN GERMANY: ‘ONLINE-FORTBILDUNG IN MEDIZINISCHEN KINDERSCHUTZ’
On request, Augeo made some of its online courses available to employees at the children’s clinics (Kinderklinieken) in the Weser-Ems region of Germany. According to a test carried out prior to their implementation, the rated self-efficacy in tackling CAN decreases with age and years of working experience. Medical professionals in other German hospitals can also access Augeo’s online courses by buying them individually or by purchasing an Augeo membership.
EUSEM AND EUSEN: ‘VISIBILITY OF CHILD MALTREATMENT IN THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT - A EUROPEAN APPROACH’
The Augeo Foundation joined forces with the European Society for Emergency Medicine (EUSEM), the European Society for Emergency Nursing (EuSEN), Erasmus Medical Centre and Haaglanden Medical Centre to improve the knowledge and implementation of tools aimed at identifying more victims of family maltreatment in emergency departments throughout Europe.
Both EUSEM and EuSEN share the same vision for 2018-2019: ‘Better outcomes for maltreated children in Europe!’
As part of this collaboration, a survey will be carried out to gain insight into child maltreatment strategies at EDs throughout Europe and to create more awareness. Based on the results of this survey, recommendations will be made for improvements. EUSEM and EuSEN will compile a joint improvement plan to support their members (e.g. models for screening tools and/or training courses for better detection).
Augeo, Erasmus Medical Centre and Haaglanden Medical Centre held a presentation at the 2017 EUSEM congress in Athens entitled, ‘Detection of family maltreatment at the Emergency Department’.
