Course Objectives

View the Training Brochure for this class

Investigating injuries and deaths of children requires a unique approach and a solid understanding of the aspects of investigation that are unique to child victims. This course provides a comprehensive overview of the approach used in the investigation of injury and deaths involving children, including natural causes, accidental injuries, and child physical abuse. Taught from medical examiner case material, the course provides a highly graphic overview of actual cases involving infants and children.

Investigators will learn common presentations and scene findings in cases involving sudden natural deaths, including important interview questions, scene investigations, and autopsy findings. Participants will differentiate common accidental patterns of injury from injuries inflicted by caregivers, based upon the pediatric age group. Common scene findings, victim age ranges and characteristics, and perpetrator characteristics and behaviors for the various age ranges and causes of death will be highlighted and compared. Natural diseases and conditions that may be mistaken for abuse will also be illustrated. Other topics include neonaticide (the killing of a newborn infant), stranger-abduction homicide, and factitious illness (also known as Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy).

Upon Completion: Participants will be able to:

  • Identify common causes of death in infants, toddlers, and older children
  • Differentiate common accidental injury patterns from inflicted injury patterns
  • Recognize natural conditions that may be mistaken for abuse
  • Identify common victim and perpetrator characteristics in the most common causes of death from inflicted injury
  • Recognize “recurring themes” and findings in neonaticide and factitious illness
  • Identify scene investigative techniques for the pediatric age range
  • Recognize victim and perpetrator characteristics in the most common causes of death in each unique age group
  • Understand the complexity and specificity required with pediatric death investigation
