Medical providers who specialize in child abuse pediatrics provide comprehensive, developmentally-sensitive, trauma-informed medical assessments and care for children suspected of being maltreated. Medical evaluations are provided to ensure the health of the child. A medical evaluation includes medical history, physical exam, and, when appropriate, documentation of any signs of abuse, collection of physical evidence, diagnostic testing, testing for other medical conditions that could be mistaken for maltreatment, treatment and referrals.
