Studies indicate that health professionals and students often perceive curricula on family violence as inadequate (e.g., content is insufficient to address the issue) or ineffective (e.g., students cannot recall training).
In formal curricula on family violence, content is incomplete, instruction time is generally minimal, content and teaching methods vary, and the issue is not well integrated throughout the educational experience.
