When faced with suspected child abuse or neglect, turn to the Child Protection Telemedicine and Distance Learning Network.
Child advocacy center staff, medical professionals, child protective service workers and law enforcement throughout Georgia can access these services and support through the Child Protection Telemedicine and Distance Learning Network.
The network provides one-on-one access to a team of experts without having to leave your community when sexual or physical abuse or neglect is suspected. Teleconferencing equipment allows a provider at Children’s to converse with the patient, family, investigators and examiner. Medical experts provide real-time assistance with physical exams, while mental health professionals conduct psychological assessments and provide treatment.
Through the network, multidisciplinary teams also have access to continuing professional education about various aspects of child abuse and neglect investigations. Continuing education credit will be available.
Distance Learning will take place at several locations via the Center's Telemedicine network the second Tuesday of every month from 9 to 10 a.m. To register for a distance learning session at one of the participating child advocacy centers, contact the CAC directly. For more information about the distance learning program, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
