NSPCC and Cardiff Child Protection Systematic Reviews
Our Core Info leaflet can help you identify scalds and burns sustained by children that may be the result of abuse
Thermal injuries on children is based on a systematic review of the quality work in the world literature about scalds and burns sustained by children. This information should help you to know when to be concerned about thermal injuries that may be the result of abuse or neglect.
Thermal injuries on children 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.
