Family Violence: The Texas Medical Association believes that physicians should be aware of the resources available in their community such as information provided by the Texas Family Violence Council and information on family protective orders developed by the Office of the Attorney General to inform and support victims of domestic violence. Physicians should make this information available in their waiting rooms or have their office staff provide it. The association should provide physicians with information on the symptoms of domestic violence and abuse, and physicians should record information on domestic violence in the patient’s medical file (CPH, p 129, A-92; amended CPH Rep. 3-A-10; amended CSPH Rep. 1-A-19).
