Impact of Patient History on Residents' Evaluation of Child Sexual Abuse.
Ashworth, Carolyn S.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n8 p943-51 Aug 1995
Twenty-three pediatric residents reviewed slides of 15 children's genitalia (normal or abnormal) and were given either a specific or nonspecific history for sexual abuse. Results indicated that incongruency between patient history and physical examination negatively affected residents' ability to discriminate between abuse and nonabuse findings. Gender or year of training did not affect correct response rate. (Author/DB)
