The Division of Child Abuse Pediatrics is actively involved in clinical research to improve the care of children who have been victims of abuse and neglect.

Along with clinical research the Division has multiple ongoing Quality Improvement projects that are organizing and streamlining care delivered to children who are victims of abuse.

  • We are partnered with the Division of Emergency Medicine on a P4P project to improve child abuse evaluations in the Emergency Care Center.
  • As a part of the Chadwick Center, one of the nations largest and well recognized child advocacy centers, our Division actively participates in quality improvement projects to enhance the response to child maltreatment. 

Our Faculty are involved in a diverse array of national and international professional societies committed to improving prevention, treatment and research of child maltreatment.
