Webinar “Applying the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Framework to Fatality Review and Prevention”
To be presented March 8, 2017 from 2PM to 3PM EST
Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, can have a significant impact on the lifelong health and opportunity of individuals and families. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study links risky health behaviors, chronic health conditions, low life potential and early death to events occurring in childhood. ACEs are a public health issue that can be prevented. Applying the ACEs framework to fetal, infant and child death review helps to identify and target unique prevention opportunities.

Webinar “Fatality Review of Deaths of Infants, Children and Youth with Disabilities and Special Health Care Needs”
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.
