The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to improve the skills of state and local people who work in the child death review process and systems and to promote improved health services delivery, risk reduction and public health and safety focused prevention programs. Specifically, this cooperative agreement will(1) provide technical assistance support to States, particularly State Title V agencies, and communities as they develop, implement and sustain CDR as a community-based process to assess and improve services and systems for children and adolescents;(2) refine the methodology for CDR through continuous assessment of effective use of data of the state of the field, trends and feedback from States and communities; (3) support expanded use of the CDR process in translating data into policy. Policies concerning other adverse events (e.g., morbidity) affecting the maternal and child health population may also be supported, and (4) promote collabor!
ation with other MCH related mortality/morbidity review processes to increase effectiveness and reduce duplication of effort.
