October 1997 AAOS Report

Family violence contacts on-line

A list of national and state agencies that help victims of family violence is available on the Academy's home page at http://www.aaos.org in the "What's New" section. It is part of the Academy's educational program, "It's OK to Talk to Your Orthopaedic Surgeon about Family Violence," designed to heighten orthopaedists' awareness of domestic, child and elder abuse victims. The home page also contains a listing of Academy initiatives that are being implemented to educate orthopaedic surgeons about family violence.
