Coming Thursday, April 28th, Mw. M.H.J. Loos will defend the dissertation 'Paediatric trauma: We are missing non-accidental injuries'. Supervisor is Prof. R.R. van Rijn. The co-supervisor is Dr R. Bakx.

For her PhD Marie-Louise Loos studied, in a national collaboration with Level 1 trauma centers and for one study also in collaboration with forensic physicians, children that were presented at a shock room of a Level 1 trauma center. The study shows that we miss abuse and especially neglect and that in the case of death there is actually far too little further investigation done.
