Join the CFPS Investigative and Data Quality Subcommittee!
Sasha Mintz, the CFPS Epidemiologist, is looking for folks interested in joining the Investigative and
Data Quality Subcommittee!
The overarching purpose of the subcommittee is to improve child fatality data quality through:
- Increasing dissemination and utilization of the Sudden Unexpected Infant Death Reporting Form (SUIDIRF) and Suicide Death Investigation Form at law enforcement agencies and coroner offices.
- Providing technical assistance to local child fatality review teams on best practices for firearm fatality reviews.
- Improving substance use data by supplementing CFPS data with other data sources.
- Enhancing processes for child fatality data entry, analysis, and dissemination.
The subcommittee meets quarterly (February, May, August, November) on the first Wednesday of the month from
3:00-4:30pm MST. Subcommittee members may attend in person at CDPHE’s main campus or participate remotely
via conference call.
All who are interested, and from any professional background, are encouraged to join!
Our next meeting is November 6th, 2019 from 3:00-4:30pm MST. You are more than welcome to attend and listen-in on this meeting if you’d further like to gauge your interest in joining the group.
Please reach out to Sasha (firstname.lastname@example.org, 303-692-2306) if you would like to become a
member, attend a future meeting, or have any questions!
