What do we do well? What can we do better?
If you are curious to find out more about how physical abuse of infants presents to health professionals and how the various professionals identify and respond to physical abuse of infants, then this one day ISFRI workshop might be for you! Each speaker will talk about the important considerations facing their professional group when working with an abused infant.
