Child Abuse Case Conference

The Child Abuse Case Conference is a monthly webinar conference for case reviews and topical updates in child maltreatment. We have been hosting a televideo for years that required participants to go to a hospital based teleconferencing suite. Starting in February 2011, we moved to an online webinar format to facilitate participation and save participants time going to a separate location. This requires a good internet connection. We are currently using voice-over-internet conferencing, and this is best done with a head set. Speakers and a microphone will work, and if you don’t have a microphone, you can “chat” by entering typed messages (but will need speakers to listen). Televideo is currently the 4th Thursday of each month from September to June from 8:30-9:45. Gina Cochrane sends out a reminder each month. If you are not on her list and would like to be, contact her at If you woudl like to volunteer to host a webinar, present a case, or have questions or suggestions about content or format, contact Adam Zolotor at
