Resources to Prevent Child Fatalities
In 1978, the Los Angeles County Interagency Council on Child Abuse and Neglect (ICAN) formed the first child death review team. Today there are more than 900 child death review teams throughout the United States and a growing number of teams around the globe.
ICAN has worked with international organizations to develop International Child.org, an interactive resource center on the Internet that is dedicated to supporting a multidisciplinary network of professionals who work to prevent fatal and severe child abuse and neglect.
The online resources available include a child death review curriculum that is based on protocols developed in California and research studies from around the world. Accessing resources requires free registration. [Editor's note: This link is no longer available.]
