Abstract : This study examines the development, implementation, and results of a Family Advocacy Program to determine if the program meets standards imposed by the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED). Programs for identification, intervention, treatment, and prevention of child abuse, spouse abuse, and sexual assault were studied. The author concludes that the Family Advocacy Program studied fails to meet the standards imposed by BUMED, and argues that this indicates the standards are unrealistic given the lack of additional resources allocated to the facility for the program. The author recommends that control and coordination of the Family Advocacy Program at the local level to be developed to the medical command, but rather to the larger military community via the chain of command.
