The Child Fatality Review Quick Reference is an ideal field guide for establishing, maintaining, and improving child fatality review teams (CFRTs). With sections devoted to review procedures, the roles of each team member, and full-color photographs of various causes and manners of death, this pocket-sized edition is required reading for anyone involved in the child fatality review process.
Case studies illustrate abusive and accidental forms of death, including neglect, SIDS, suicide, burns, drowning, genetic diseases, natural causes, and abusive head trauma. This text is a vital tool for all members of a child fatality review team, and it can serve as a guide for anyone trying to form a CFRT.
