This third edition newly titled compendium updates laws and regulations; offers new public health content; provides summaries for U.S. territories; and includes a new chapter: Tribal Codes on Domestic Violence and Promising Programs in Indian Country.
Futures invited staff from every state and territory domestic violence coalition to review their respective summary and provide feedback; the Compendium reflects these comments. Relevant state and territory laws were researched to ensure correct citations through both state legislative web pages and LexisNexus.
The Compendium includes state and territory-specific summaries that address the following areas: domestic violence fatality review; mandatory reporting of domestic violence to law enforcement by health care providers; insurance discrimination against victims of domestic violence; health care protocols addressing domestic violence; screening for domestiv violence by health care professionals and training on domestic violence for health care professionals. Additional information is provided where available on state or territory public health programs, and funding opportunities.
