Confronting Chronic Neglect: The Education and Training of Health Professionals on Family Violence Health Care Discipline Accreditation Institutions Requirements Related to Family Violence Description Medical Schools Liaison Commission on Medical Education (LCME) S “The curriculum should prepare students for their role in addressing the medical consequences of common societal problems, for example, providing instructions in the diagnosis, prevention, appropriate reporting and treatment of violence and abuse.” Standards can be found on the LCME web site at www.lcme.org.   Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) X The institutional requirements of the ACGME are very practical in nature and do not outline any single curriculum requirements including any dealing with family violence. American Osteopathic Healthcare Association (AOHA) NS Institutions are required to include within the spectrum of “Emergency Procedures” some instruction regarding “abuse and neglect” of children. While these standards are not a requirement onto themselves, they do seem to be somewhat quantifiable. Physician Residencies Residency Review Committees (RRC) of the ACGME S The residency review committees of the ACGME, which accredit programs rather than institutions, do have provisions for family violence in certain fields. Though the genetics area does not mention family violence, the areas of family practice and obstetrics indicate how to identify signs of family violence and the steps to take. Dental Schools American Dental Association, Commission on Dental Accreditation (ADA) NS There is no specific mention of family violence in the accreditation commission’s standards. Such training is believed to fall under the purview of a provision for “ethical reasoning” and “professional responsibility.”

Confronting Chronic Neglect: The Education and Training of Health Professionals on Family Violence Nursing Schools Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education Accreditation (CCNE) X CCNE guidelines are very generic and do not provide for any particular curriculum requirements. The guidelines allow schools to choose their own direction and philosophy and subsequently measures them against the standard they have chosen. Nurse Practitioners National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) NS “NLNAC does not include specific curriculum content areas within its standards and criteria. When specific curriculum content is designated it is usually from the State Boards of Nursing since NLNAC is voluntary.” Standards can be accessed on the website at www.nlnac.org.   National Association of Pediatric Nurse Associates & Practitioners, Inc. (NAPNAP) NS NAPNAP recognizes that there is “substantial scientific evidence that children who are abused physically, sexually, emotionally or who are neglected, are prevented from optimal development.” NAPNAP has in place a thorough position statement on child abuse/neglect. Psychology Programs AND Internship Sites Committee on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association: accredits both schools and internship sites (APA) X There is no mention of family violence in the APA accreditation guidelines. They take a broad stance on evaluating the goals that institutions set for themselves.

Confronting Chronic Neglect: The Education and Training of Health Professionals on Family Violence Health Care Discipline Accreditation Institutions Requirements Related to Family Violence Description Social Work Programs Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) NS CSWE has no specific requirements mandating that the issue of family violence be discussed on any level. There is an expectation that a program dealing with social work must at some point address the problem. Should an institution not do this, it would probably be cited. Physician Assistant Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education (CAAHEP) Programs X There is no reference to family violence made in the CAAHEP standards or guidelines. Curriculum is the responsibility of the sponsoring institution with the exception of a few general study education requirements.   Effective January 1, 2001, CAAHEP no longer will be the accreditor of physician assistant education programs. All current accreditations are being transferred from CAAHEP to the Accreditation Review Commission on Education of the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). http://www.CAAHEP.org/caahep_pa.htm   Note: S = specific existing requirements; NS = nonspecific requirements; X= no identifiable requirements.
