CHILD ABUSE RESPONSE AND EVALUATION
A new state-funded initiative to train and support healthcare practitioners in the medical evaluation and behavioral health screening of children referred for maltreatment
How to get involved with the CARE Network
Why join the CARE Network?
Every year in Colorado, thousands of children are impacted by maltreatment.
Expertise to conduct medical evaluations and behavioral health screenings in suspected cases of child maltreatment is extremely limited.
When children do not have access to specialized services, they do not receive the medical care they need.
Any child impacted by physical abuse, sexual abuse or neglect should have access to quality care.
Increase capacity throughout the state by establishing a standardized and coordinated medical
response to suspected cases of child maltreatment.
Build a designated network of providers around the state who are committed to providing quality
care for children within their communities.
Ensure support for network providers through education and training opportunities, mentorship,
financial reimbursement and other resources.
The healthcare provider is an important partner to other systems working to ensure child safety and family well-being.
HOW CAN YOU BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION?
When child maltreatment is suspected, healthcare professionals play a crucial role in recognition and treatment, family support and community collaboration.
YOU can join the network. Learn more about requirements, commitment, training and how to join: PROVIDER INFORMATION.
