Scientists at the University Hospital Bonn have worked with experts from the fields of youth welfare and education to develop recommendations for action for child protection and summarize them in new medical guideline at S3 level. P >
“We have to recognize earlier and help more quickly when children are in need. The first signs of mistreatment, abuse or neglect are often noticed in the doctor's office, "says Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) on the publication of the guideline. This guideline offers doctors important support. The Federal Ministry of Health financially supported the work on the guideline.
According to the authors, the guideline essentially follows three goals: It should increase the security in perceiving, recognizing and dealing with the different forms of child abuse, improve diagnostics and offer help in dealing with other professions, especially with employees from the areas of youth welfare and education.
The S3 guideline is available on the homepage of the Working Group of Scientific Medical Societies. hil
