Abstract Pediatric abusive head trauma is a significant contributor to pediatric morbidity and mortality in the United States. Signs and symptoms can be vague, nonspecific, and difficult to recognize. This article increases the healthcare provider's level of suspicion and ability to recognize early warning signs of abuse. It also addresses evidence-based prevention strategies. This information is useful to nurses, advanced practice nurses, and physicians who work with children and families in any capacity.
