A state-of-the-art multimedia presentation of how to interview and evaluate sexually abused children, this CD-ROM is based on Oxford's widely acclaimed textbook Evaluation of the Sexually Abused Child. It features a searchable text and references, a full-color photo atlas, real-time video case simulations, actual patient interviews, and follow-up evaluations.
The CD-ROM contains the following four modules:
Evaluation of the Sexually Abused Child: Consisting of a photo atlas and an electronic version of the textbook which offers detailed analysis of the medical, forensic, and legal aspects of child sexual abuse. The text is authored by a team of contributors which includes many of the preeminent experts in the field. Hypertext linkage allows searching and comparison of widely separated words and concepts, as well as quick look-up of illustrations, videos, and photographs.
Case Studies: Six pediatric gynecology cases are presented in detail, with interactive history, exam, and lab sections. Videos of the actual patient interviews are presented along with digital photos. The user is asked to look for signs of sexual abuse, and decide if further forensic follow-up is required. He/she must conduct a virtual physical exam, suggest tentative diagnosis, and order appropriate texts and procedures. Each case concludes with a discussion of the conditions involved, an analysis of the users' work-up, and a list of references.
Consultations: The user plays the role of consultant on 28 cases, each of which includes a short description, video clips and photographs of the patient, one or more questions concerning diagnosis and treatment, and a final discussion.
Legal Opinions: The user is asked to evaluate the legal status of 30 separate cases. Given a brief description and image, he has to classify the case into one of our categories.
