Technical Assistance On the Road: Chapter 4

April 15, 2014
Trip to Moffat County
"On the Road Again"
Entering Moffat County

I made a trip to Craig last week in conjunction with with my trip to Steamboat. Beth Watson, Public Health Nurse with the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association (NWCOVNA) and CFR Team Coordinator for Routt and Moffat Counties, and Charity Neal, NWCOVNA Public Health Director, welcomed me to Moffat County's first child fatality review meeting.

The Moffat County team was very engaged in the review process and prevention was a high priority. Based on the case reviewed, the team developed a prevention strategy that could be implemented through the local school district. 

Again, it is extremely exciting to see the immediate action and impact that these local teams will have on the community.

Colleen Zufelt, Public Health Director and CFR Coordinator for Rio Blanco County also attended this meeting. Colleen is in the process of setting up her Child Fatality Prevention team and was looking for some guidance. From attending this meeting, Colleen was able to get some ideas on how to get started and she was able to collaborate with Beth and Charity on CFR and other Public Health issues. 

Beth, Charity, and Colleen, it was great meeting you all. Thank you for your hospitality and for all the hard work you have put into establishing your Child Fatality Prevention teams. 

Until we meet again,
