Child Abuse and Neglect: Mandated Reporter Training for Illinois Healthcare Professionals

The state of Illinois has specific requirements for mandated reporter training. In this webinar – which has been designed to meet the training mandate set forth by the state of Illinois – Dr. Norell Rosado of Lurie Children’s Hospital’s Division of Child Abuse Pediatrics and ISMIE’s Chief Legal Officer and Chief Compliance Officer, Robert John Kane, JD, will discuss the indicators for child abuse and neglect, the importance of responding to a child in a trauma-informed manner, and the process and responsibilities of a mandated reporter in the state of Illinois.

Successful completion of this program allows healthcare professionals to attest that they have met the state’s training requirement for mandated reporters prior to the next re-licensure cycle and such training will count toward meeting their required continuing education hours.
