Assessing abuse

Assessing abuse

1. You successfully convinced your colleagues to assess routinely for abuse, and now they want to know how to do it. How would you go about teaching them to assess for child abuse? Intimate partner abuse? Older adult abuse?

2.A colleague who has witnessed a child being abused states, “I don’t think it’s any of our business what people do in the privacy of their own homes.” What would you be legally required to do? What are your ethical responsibilities?
