Child Maltreatment: Interventions
Description of Resource:
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of primary care interventions to prevent child maltreatment. This is an I statement, which means evidence is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting, and the balance of benefits and harms cannot be determined. Children with signs or symptoms suggestive of maltreatment should be assessed or reported according to the applicable state laws.
