Welcome to Mandated Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect, a self-paced training for physicians and other medical providers, with funding provided by Cal OES (California Governor's Office of Emergency Services).

This training, developed by the Child Abuse Prevention Center in collaboration with a panel of physicians and child abuse experts, is comprised of 5 self-paced modules:  Physical Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Neglect and How to Make a Report.  The first four modules provide information regarding how to properly screen for and recognize child abuse. Clinical scenarios and photographs are provided to enhance learning, and interactive quizzes give you the opportunity to test your knowledge. Once you have completed the first four modules, you will have access to the final module, How to Make a Report.

Upon completion, return to the InReach webpage to take the final test for CME accreditation.
