In this course, you will learn about pediatric Abusive Head Trauma (AHT), also known as Shaken Baby Syndrome. This includes an array of symptoms and complications resulting from injury to a child or infant’s head after violent shaking or impact. It is the leading cause of child abuse deaths nationally, and for those who survive, most suffer lifelong complications and disabilities. And because obvious signs of injury may not show up right away, it is very important for healthcare providers to be able to identify at-risk individuals and recognize signs and symptoms of potential victims. By the end of this course, you will also understand the legal considerations of mandated reporters along with the process of reporting and penalties for AHT in Kentucky.
