The Child Protection Program utilizes a multidisciplinary team that serves as a resource for the hospital, surrounding local community hospitals and physicians, and other involved professionals in the mid-Missouri region for the evaluation of children for sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect.
Outpatient examinations and evaluations are conducted at a CAC (Child Advocacy Center). There is also a SANE (Sexual Abuse Nurse Examiner) program in the Emergency Room for emergency sexual assault examinations.
