Palavras-chave:Sexual Assault, Sexual Abuse, Pediatrics, Interprofessional Health Care, Health Care Education
RATIONALE: Many health care professionals are unaware of evidence-based protocols for management of pediatric sexual assault. This leads to redundant questioning and physical examination. Health care workers must recognize red flags and know basic protocols for management. OBJECTIVE: To create an educational resource for Chantel’s Place, the Peel Regional medical and forensic clinic for domestic violence and sexual assault, that improves knowledge among non-expert health care professionals regarding pediatric sexual assault protocols. METHODS: A seminar was created using information gathered from manuscripts, clinician interviews, and case reviews. One presentation was created for an interprofessionalhealth care audience and another was created for emergency room staff.
