Experts in providing compassionate, personalized pediatric care, children’s hospitals are leaders in child abuse treatment and prevention in partnership with a variety of professionals and agencies. In 2005 NACHRI surveyed its members to assess a baseline of children's hospitals' responses to child abuse and neglect, with a second survey in 2008 to establish trend data. This webinar presents findings of the 2008 survey including the challenges of increasing caseload and financial sustainability.

Presenters: Nancy Hanson, Associate Director, Child Advocacy, and Karen Seaver Hill, director, Child Advocacy, National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI); Dr. Frank Putnam, Director, Advocacy Center at the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
