ICANHELP - Introduction to Child Abuse and Neglect for Health Professionals in Low-Resource Settings Curriculum

6 hours of presentations and 2 hours of case discussions on diagnosis and treatment of sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse and intimate partner violence. After co-editing the ISPCAN Curriculum and the One Stop Centre Curriculum, Aaron Miller and Neil Kennedy adapted the medical component of these curricula into the ICANHELP Curriculum. ICANHELP is designed for doctors, nurses, and clinical officers, but is also appropriate for legal and social welfare workers.
