CE OVERVIEW REVIEWS     
Objectives:
The goal of this pediatric abusive head trauma continuing education program is to provide nurses and social workers with information about pediatric abusive head trauma and to meet the Kentucky requirement for relicensure for nurses.

After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify the risk factors, clinical presentation and physical findings of pediatric abusive head trauma in children
  • Discuss the mechanism of injury of pediatric abusive head trauma and the diagnostic workup and prognosis
  • Describe how healthcare providers as a team can educate families, the public, and other healthcare professionals about pediatric abusive head trauma to help reduce the incidence, morbidity and mortality
