2018 Orlando

Sixteenth International Conference

The Sixteenth International Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome was another tremendous conference. This bi-annual event was held in Orlando, Florida on September 16, 17, 18, 2018 at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. With over 60 sessions, this conference focused on the latest medical diagnostic innovations, investigative and legal procedures and techniques, evidence-based and creative SBS/AHT prevention programs and support for victim families.

The conference started with an extremely educational presentation by Dr. Andrew Baker, “Detection, Documentation, and Interpretation of Fractures in the Deceased Infant and Small Child: The Autopsy Perspective. This presentation provided useful guidelines to utilize radiographical skeletal surveys in pediatric autopsies. The conference concluded with a presentation from physicians, Dr. Stephen Boos and Dr. Daniel Lindberg, and prosecutors, Erica Kallin and Matthew Torbenson. The panel provided a close examination of the common diagnoses discussed in the court system to dispute AHT symptoms and injuries by featuring a mock trial with expert testimony highlighting important dos and don’ts as well as useful cross examination techniques.

In addition to the superb line-up of workshop presentations, the conference featured the always popular Basics Track for legal professionals. A majority of these sessions were recorded and will be available for future viewing through the NCSBS online training modules at
