Description:
Recognizing the signs of abuse can save the life of an ophthalmic patient. But, a patient presenting with non-accidental trauma creates a unique dilemma for the treating physician: when and how to report the suspected abuse.

Join this live discussion to gain the tools to efficiently recognize the signs of intentional violence in young children and adults. Reporting norms and current reporting regulations will be reviewed, including the possible legal consequences of not reporting suspected abuse.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Learn the clinical indications of the two most common forms of non-accidental trauma: shaken baby syndrome and orbital fracture.
  • Become familiar with transfer of care requirements when treating a patient with suspected non-accidental ophthalmic trauma.
  • Understand the reporting norms and accepted practices for reporting suspected abuse. 
  • Learn the appropriate questions and strategies to guide a disclosure conversation when talking with an adult patient presenting with non-accidental trauma.

Who should attend:
Comprehensive ophthalmologists and retina, pediatric ophthalmology or oculoplastic subspecialists
