Child Death Review

​Child Death Review

​Child Death Review (CDR) and Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) teams aim to better understand how and why children die through comprehensive, multidisciplinary reviews of events and circumstances surrounding a child’s death. Communities, local and state governments, and health care providers can use these findings to prevent other deaths and improve the health and safety of children. Pediatricians play a vital role on CDR and FIMR teams. Discover the special role pediatricians play on teams and how to become involved in your local or state team.
