Summit on child abuse produces concrete recommendations

Judges, lawmakers, child advocates and social workers agree that improved transparency and accountability from state child protection officials is the best way to prevent child abuse deaths. That was the consensus of around 250 people who attended the Kentucky Summit to End Child Abuse Deaths, which was held Saturday in Louisville.

Other top changes recommended during the summit include increasing funds for effective programs and additional social workers and improving collaboration among the different agencies that are involved with child welfare.
