  • Mandated Reporting Requirements: A Track for Georgia Medical Professionals

There is a system in place to intervene on behalf of children who may be abused or neglected and to secure their safety. In order for this system to function, however, someone must first identify and refer the children who might be in need of protection. 

    This course was written specifically for medical professionals (like doctors and nurses) in frequent contact with children. Medical professionals will learn about their legal responsibility to report suspected abuse and neglect.

  • Safe Sleep for Georgia Babies
