Physician Knowledge of Child Sexual Abuse.
Socolar, Rebecca R. S.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n8 p783-90 Aug 1996
A survey of physicians (n=113) concerning their knowledge about child sexual abuse found several areas of inadequate knowledge, including assessment of chlamydia infection, Tanner staging, and documentation of historical and physical exam findings. Factors associated with better knowledge scores were physician participation in continuing medical education and specialization in pediatrics. (Author/DB)
