The National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention will host the webinar Fatality Review of Deaths of Infants, Children and Youth with Disabilities and Special Health Care Needs. The webinar is scheduled for February 8, 2017, from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST
Approximately one-fifth of the cases reviewed by the Child Death Review (CDR) teams and entered into the CDR-Case Reporting System are deaths of children with disabilities and/or special health care needs. Infants and children with disabilities/special health care needs have different risks for death than their peers without these conditions. To conduct effective reviews of such deaths, CDR and FIMR teams need knowledge of disability/special health care needs in order to determine what role, if any, the disability/special health care needs played in the death.
