Webinar “Fatality Review of Deaths of Infants, Children and Youth with Disabilities and Special Health Care Needs”
To be presented February 8, 2017

Approximately one-fifth of the cases reviewed by 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.
