This was just sent to me by the Children’s Hospital Association. It is a pre-recorded webinar from April on violent injury interventions and speaks to how hospitals can best support children who have been in these situations. I wanted to pass it along to you all, as we, unfortunately, run into many of these cases. The write-up states:
