The Child in Room 314: Interdisciplinary Approach to Mandated Reporting

Five year old Maya is admitted with a spiral fracture of her left arm. The need for mandated reporting emerges, but how can nurses and other health care team members manage this issue with more confidence and less stress? Learn about this topic in PNCB's newest continuing education module, The Child in Room 314: Interdisciplinary Approach to Mandated Reporting.
Suspected child maltreatment needs interdisciplinary teamwork backed by collaboration and training. This module describes A-TEAM, one hospital’s approach that integrates nursing and social work expertise to sustain therapeutic relationships with the family and address staff discomfort while upholding optimal care for the child.
