Child Abuse and Neglect

Child Abuse & Neglect (CAN) Program Page

According to the most recent data as reported by the U.S, Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, over 42,000 cases of child abuse have been substantiated in New Jersey over the past five years. This number, which represents only those cases where abuse was certain and a perpetrator was identified, has taken place in every county of the state.
What proactive steps can your practice take to help prevent child abuse?
In partnership with the New Jersey Department of Children and Families (DCF), The New Jersey Chapter provides free child abuse and neglect prevention trainings to:

Pediatric practices
Emergency Departments
