Article: Care of the Adolescent Sexual Assault Victim

Yesterday's post linked the reader to an American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) report entitled The Evaluation of Sexual Abuse in Children. That report was published August 2, 2005.

Today's post links the reader to an earlier article in AAP's publication, Pediatrics. That article was published in June 2001 and deals specifically with Care of the Adolescent Sexual Assault Victim.

Both yesterday's and today's linked articles are very clinical. They do not focus on the laws, however they point out some of the challenges the laws pertaining to sexual abuse, assault, and predation create for health care providers. It is helpful to better understand the different perspectives when trying to find solutions.
