Event description
"5th Annual Child Maltreatment Conference" Joint Endeavor with Madigan Army Medical Center and Mary Bridge Children's Hospital

About this Event

The 5th Annual Child Maltreatment Conference is a multi-disciplinary approach to the recognition, treatment and prosecution of Child Physical Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Sex Trafficking, Medical Child Abuse and Neglect.

The Madigan Army Medical Center Pediatrics Department CHAT team and Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital Child Abuse Intervention Department combine forces annually to provide an educational consortium for the detection, prevention and treatment of Child Abuse. The conference is a critical part of the Pediatric Residency Graduate Medical Education and equips our Pediatric residents with the information they need to successfully navigate Child Abuse at their respective institutions and engage the necessary resources to protect military children and families. In addition, we have other residents, medical students, staff physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers and behavioral health providers in attendance to ensure a multidisciplinary approach in our care of these patients at Madigan Army Medical Center & Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and the surrounding community. Three years ago we developed the CHAT team, Child Health Advocacy Team as an internal Pediatric team specializing in the treatment and tracking of Child abuse victims. The conference will also explore these relationships and how we are striving to meet the goal of becoming a multi-disciplinary team.
