October #ADC_JC – can bruise location help us spot physical abuse?

October’s #ADC_JC discussed this paper on bruising patterns in children with physical abuse.

Anyone working with children should be on the lookout for physical abuse – but can the number of bruises and the pattern of bruising actually tell us anything?

We were joined by Professor Alison Kemp, one of the study authors and I have storified the key discussion points HERE.

Our next #ADC_JC will be some time in November.  The paper and date will be announced shortly – keep your eye on our landing page, or follow us on twitter to find out.
