Child Abuse and Neglect: Mandated Reporter Training for Illinois Healthcare Professionals

Course description

The state of Illinois has revised the child abuse reporting law complete with specific requirements for training for mandated reporters. In this webinar – which has been designed to meet the training mandate set forth by the state of Illinois – Dr. Norell Rosado of Lurie Children’s Hospital’s Division of Child Abuse Pediatrics and ISMIE’s Chief Legal Officer and Chief Compliance Officer, Robert John Kane, JD, will discuss the indicators for child abuse and neglect, the importance of responding to a child in a trauma-informed manner, and the process and responsibilities of a mandated reporter in the state of Illinois.

Successful completion of this program allows healthcare professionals to attest that they have met the state’s new training requirement for mandated reporters prior to the next re-licensure cycle and such training will count toward meeting their required continuing education hours.

  • Identify indicators for child abuse and neglect
  • Recognize how to respond to a child in a trauma-informed manner when abuse or neglect is suspected
