The National Center’s training module series for fatality review professionals was created to support ongoing professional development for fatality review coordinators and team members. Each of these modules is under 1 hour in length and includes a topic-specific video presentation, as well as links to additional helpful resources.

The modules may be useful when: on-boarding new fatality review staff; orienting new team members to a fatality review team; holding periodic training opportunities for team members; educating partners about fatality review processes; or initiating a new process in your fatality review program, such as adding parental/family interviews or adopting the National Fatality Review-Case Reporting System.  CEU credit is not available.

The modules cover both basic process topics, as well as best practice topics. Modules can be accessed individually and viewed in any order. The topics include:

  • Child Death Review (CDR) 101
  • Best Practices for Improving Data Quality
  • Meeting Facilitation
  • Effective Review Team Meetings
