CORE-INFO: Bruises On Children

A leaflet about how to differentiate accidental from non-accidental bruises.

Bruises On Children is one of a series of information leaflets on aspects of physical child abuse based on a collaborative piece of work by the NSPCC and CORE-INFO (Welsh Child Protection Systematic Review Group).
