Child Fatality Prevention System Regional Training Meetings

During the 2013 Colorado Legislative Session, legislation passed (Senate Bill 13-255) that moved the review of individual child fatality cases from the state-level to the local-level. Local public health agencies are responsible for establishing a local (or regional), multidisciplinary child fatality review team in their jurisdiction by January 1, 2015. 

In order to help orient community partners to the child fatality review process, the Colorado Fatality Prevention System staff at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is hosting nine regional trainings throughout the state in late October/early November.

Who should attend?
Per statute, each local or regional review teams must include representatives of the following list of agencies.
