Confronting Chronic Neglect: The Education and Training of Health Professionals on Family Violence
Health Care Discipline
Requirements Related to Family Violence
Social Work Programs
Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)
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.
Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education (CAAHEP) Programs
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
