Purpose of Activity:
To provide an overview of victim-centered care in cases of CSA.
Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a grim yet relevant topic in NP practice. Because of its correlation with preventing further abuse and decreasing a child's self-blame, early disclosure is always encouraged.1 This article aims to improve understanding of the role NPs potentially play in responding to victims of CSA and their parents or caregivers after disclosure. Effective care begins with acknowledgment of CSA as a uniquely challenging and specialized area of trauma.
The extent of NP involvement in caring for victims of CSA hinges on the depth of knowledge, experience, and skills they possess. NPs must determine if they are adequately prepared with the education, training, and requisite skills to safely and competently care for victims of CSA.
After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:
• Outline the unique concerns and the steps taken in victim-centered care for children suffering CSA.
• Discern the role of the nurse practitioner in CSA disclosure and the unique training and requisite skills to safely and competently care for victims of CSA.
Topics: Child Abuse, Sexual Assault
