Dealing with the medical aspects of a child abuse case requires a thorough and thoughtful approach. In order to encourage the development of appropriate medical techniques and procedures, St Luke’s CARES Program and the Idaho Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers partner to sponsor the annual Idaho Medical Provider Child Abuse Conference. Held in the fall of each year, this conference brings together recognized medical professionals from across the state of Idaho. Conference goers have the opportunity to collaborate with other attendees and peer review various cases.
In addition to the networking opportunities the annual conference provides, this event incorporates various lectures from leading medical examiners and forensic experts. Attendees are equipped with various resources, including the latest information regarding child abuse research. Using this information, conference attendees learn more about the established protocols and gain a better understanding of how to handle the intricate details of medical cases involving alleged child victims.
The 2017 conference will focus on child sexual abuse medical evaluations and legal aspects of child abuse cases.
