Important survey on child maltreatment toolkit in Emergency Departments in Europe

There is a need for improving recognition of child maltreatment in the emergency department (ED). Recently, a study performed by the Erasmus MC Sophia Children’s Hospital and Augeo Foundation in collaboration with the EUSEM, REPEM and EuSEN ( showed that only 25.6% (34/133) of the EDs in Europe follow most of the NICE guideline recommendations on child abuse & neglect.

As a follow-up, this survey aims to study barriers and facilitators for the implementation of a child maltreatment toolkit, consisting of a screening checklist, training and a strategy for adequate hospital policy, at EDs in Europe.

Can we do better? Do you want to help in the battle against child maltreatment?
