SBS Training for Professionals: National Center on SBS

Jenifer at the Forensic Healthcare Online blog mentioned the intermediate training program on SBS offered by the National Center on SBS. She is looking for comment on the course content and info on whether continuing ed credits can be earned on course completion.

If you have info to share, please visit the FHO blog and post your comments...

The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome has an online training center for professionals and the lay public. One of the professional courses they offer is an intermediate course on Shaken Baby Syndrome and Abusive Head Trauma. It is comprised of 4 lessons, including an Overview of Shaken Baby Syndrome, Medical Perspectives, Investigation and Legal Issues, and Prevention.

Cost of the course is $60. I don’t have any information about the course format, and it is unclear whether CEs are offered upon completion. If you have this information or find out through completion of the course, please let us know in the comments.

She also links to a webinar from the U. of Pittsburgh on translating lessons learned from child fatality death review into practice (2005). Important stuff (it's a PPT presentation by Teri Covington of the National Center for Child Death Review - slide 4 is a map comparing the level of child deaths in states - very interesting)...
Child Death Reviews (or Child Fatality Reviews as they’re called in my neck of the woods) are happening in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Talking about child fatalities doesn’t always mean putting lessons learned into practice, though. The University of Pittsburgh, Department of Neurological Surgery’s Center for Injury Research and Control has an archived webinar on this topic: The Role of the Injury Professional on the Child Death Review Team: Translating CDR Findings to Injury Prevention Policy and Practice.
