Child Death Review

with one comment

Child Death Reviews (or Child Fatality Reviews as they’re called in my neck of the woods) are happening in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Talking about child fatalities doesn’t always mean putting lessons learned into practice, though. The University of Pittsburgh, Department of Neurological Surgery’s Center for Injury Research and Control has an archived webinar on this topic: The Role of the Injury Professional on the Child Death Review Team: Translating CDR Findings to Injury Prevention Policy and Practice.

Although it’s from 2005 (so take in the stats with that in mind), the presentation does a nice job outlining some of the nuts and bolts of fatality reviews, and how injury professionals play a part in the review process (and in operationalizing findings later on). To view the webinar, you’ll need to download the java app included in the link. If you’d prefer not to do that, at the very least you can download the slide presentation, in PDF form.
