The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (NCSBS) is committed to supporting and participating in evidence based research on SBS/AHT (shaken baby syndrome/abusive head trauma). NCSBS staff and International Advisory Board Members have authored and collaborated on many research projects and publications.
The NCSBS started gathering media reports of SBS/AHT and started a database in 1998 to collect data on perpetrator and victim profiles, triggers for abuse and legal outcomes of the publicly reported cases of SBS/AHT. This database now has over 3,600 individual cases from around the world and has been used for several research projects.
