Child abuse and maltreatment is not limited to a particular   age—it can occur in the infant, toddler, preschool, and   school-age years. Choose one of the four age groups and outline the   types of abuse most commonly seen among children of that age. Describe   warning signs and physical and emotional assessment findings the nurse   may see that could indicate child abuse. Discuss cultural variations   of health practices that can be misidentified as child abuse. Describe   the reporting mechanism in your state and nurse responsibilities   related to the reporting of suspected child abuse.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Informatics and Surveillance website contains a number of resources nurses could innovatively incorporate in care delivery. The CDC Wonder site could be utilized by nurses in a number of ways.

For this discussion you will:

Identify one of the resources at the CDC Wonder site above and describe how a nurse might use this information in practice.

How might nurses utilizing telehealth benefit from these resources?

Address what you find innovative about the link.

Feel free to share some of your nursing innovation ideas!
