Initial Assessment Resources

The Wisconsin Child Abuse Network (WI CAN) website provides a variety of educational resources beneficial for CPS Initial Assessment professionals with all levels of experience.

To further your learning, we recommend starting with the on-demand webinar, “What is That Mark? Skin Findings in Physical Abuse” presented by Dr. Lynn Sheets (September 21, 2018).
The information and visuals in this webinar will help you build a base of knowledge about different types of injuries you could encounter in children, what you should look for and what you should be asking of medical staff.
