Bruising in Children? Non-Accidental Injury Having bruises can be a normal part of childhood but it can also be a sign of abuse. So, how can we tell the difference and what actions do we need to take if we suspect abuse?

1. Recognition of the pattern of ‘everyday bruising’ in children

2. Recognition of how inflicted bruising in children differs from everyday bruising

3. How to record your findings

4. Understanding the notion of a ‘sentinel injury’ in child maltreatment

5. Other non-accidental injuries and cutaneous mimics

6. The effects of COVID lockdown on the incidence of bruising and its recognition

7. The developmental consequences of physical abuse and chastisement in childhood

8. Where to find evidence-informed guidance on bruising in children

9. What action to take when you are considering or suspecting child maltreatment (NICE CG89)

10. Where to obtain advice when you are concerned about a child with a bruise
