NSPCC and Cardiff Child Protection Systematic Reviews

Our Core Info leaflet summarises what is currently known about the differentiation between abusive and non-abusive bruises


Bruising is the most common injury to a child who has been physically abused. These key messages should help you to know when to be concerned about bruising on children.

 

Bruises on children is based on a systematic review of all the quality work in the world literature about bruises on children.  It is one of a series of information leaflets on aspects of physical child abuse based on a collaborative project by the NSPCC and Cardiff Child Protection Systematic Reviews at Cardiff University.
