We provide on-site presentation on recognizing and reporting suspected child abuse. You can choose from the full length presentaion (EPIC SCAN) or the condensed presentation (SCAN Express). Both are provided at no cost.
16 EPIC SCAN: This was our first program, created in 1999, and stands for Educating Physicians in their Community on Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect. The EPIC model focuses on peer to peer education that takes place at the pediatric or family practice location and includes the entire office staff. EPIC-SCAN is designed to encourage change in the day to day practice procedures. Conducted by a presentation team of a physician and local Children and Youth worker, EPIC-SCAN is a 1 ½ hour PowerPoint presentation that is ideal for the office lunch break. As an incentive to have all office personnel familiar with the Child Protective Services Law, reimbursement of meal expenses is offered when scheduling an EPIC-SCAN presentation. CME/CEU credits are awarded to eligible staff for participation in the program. A Child Abuse Office Kit is provided to the practice which includes contact information for making a report, sample office protocol, tip sheets, list of Frequently Asked Questions, and prevention materials.  
 

SCAN Express: This is a shortened version of EPIC-SCAN and includes an overview of what to look for, how to report and what happens after a report of suspected child abuse is made. Designed to be 45 minutes long, SCAN Express is offered on-site for all practice personnel and presented by a physician and local Children and Youth worker. CME credit is awarded to eligible staff however meal reimbursement is not offered. The practice site receives a Child Abuse Office Kit which includes contact information for making a report, sample office protocol, tip sheets, list of Frequently Asked Questions, and prevention materials.
