The main interest of our colleagues from Belgrade was the procedure of diagnosing traumatised children, the integration of multidisciplinary examinations into the findings of the multidisciplinary team and the treatment of children and their families. We exchanged experience in the field of the protection of abused children in our two countries, as well as the possibilities of cooperation of professionals in the health system with the institutions in charge of child protection (social care centres, the police, state attorneys, the judiciary, etc.).
