Texas Children's Hospital Child Abuse Prevention and Education (CAPE) Day
The purpose of CAPE Day is to improve outcomes of child abuse victims through education on child abuse recognition, treatment, and prevention. In our community and throughout the nation, child abuse and neglect continue to be serious problems. A report of child abuse is made every 10 seconds in the United States, and 4 children die as a result of abuse every day. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention:
There were 676,000 victims of child abuse and neglect reported to child protective services (CPS) in 2016.
It is estimated that 1 in 4 children experience some form of child abuse or neglect in their lifetimes and 1 in 7 children have experienced abuse or neglect in the last year.
The total lifetime economic cost of child abuse and neglect is estimated at $124 billion each year.
This conference will offer opportunities for nurses, social workers, and child life specialists to apply principles of evidence-based best practices to improve child abuse victim care, and develop strategies to prevent children from becoming abuse victims in the future.
Texas Children's Hospital is an approved provider with commendation of continuing nursing education by the Texas Nurses Association - Approver, an accredited approver with distinction, by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
