boy and female doctorChild Advocacy and Protection: Patient Care

The Child Advocacy and Protection Services (CAPS) program consists of a hospital-based program and several outpatient Child Advocacy Centers that serve Milwaukee and the surrounding areas.

The hospital-based CAPS program provides consulting services to children seen at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and associated clinics as well as to community physicians, law enforcement, and social services when concerns about child maltreatment arise.

Our outpatient Child Advocacy Centers provide onsite services including forensic interviews, mental health therapy, medical evaluations, and victim services.

The medical team is composed of pediatricians and nurse practitioners who are actively engaged in teaching and research in addition to their clinical duties.

In total, the child abuse team evaluated more than 5500 cases of suspected child maltreatment in 2010, including physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and foster care evaluations.
