D-12 - The Good, the Bad, and the Furry - Life on an MDT

<p>The Children&rsquo;s Advocacy Center of Pierce County opened in 1998 as a hospital based CAC. The first multidisciplinary child abuse investigative protocol was developed prior to the inception of the CAC and provided a guide for the community and subsequent CAC development. The CAC of Pierce County currently serves three Children&rsquo;s Administration Offices and over 20 law enforcement agencies. Over the last 20 years we have grown and adapted with our changing community, societal issues and changing partners. This session will discuss the challenges and achievements of working as an MDT for 20 years. The presenters will share first hand experiences of failures and triumphs of working as a team while always striving to put the child victim first.</p>
