Professor Alison Kemp is the Director of The Welsh Child Protection Systematic Review Group which has produced a series of systematic reviews around the clinical indicators, diagnosis and investigation of physical child abuse. Key findings and included studies are summarised on and core-info leaflets have been produced jointly with the NSPCC to highlight the indicators of physical abuse to allied professionals. This session will address the benefits of the systematic review process and concentrate on Abusive Head and spinal trauma as well as ophthalmological findings in physical abuse. Data will be presented about the clinical and neuro radiological findings in abusive head trauma and abusive spinal trauma. The most recent review confirms the strong association of retinal findings with abusive head trauma which will be detailed. The data will be drawn together into an evidence based argument for an investigation strategy for suspected abusive head trauma or spinal trauma in children.
