Child Fatality Review Team
The Child Fatality Review Team (CFR Team) will hold its regular scheduled meetings at the SpringHill Suites by Marriott located at 424 E. Parkcenter Blvd., Boise, ID 83706.
The Governor's Task Force on Children at Risk has established a statewide Child Fatality Review Team to allow comprehensive and multidisciplinary review of deaths of children younger than 18 years-old, in order to identify what information and education may improve the health and safety of Idaho's children. This professional team is demographically diverse and meet on a quarterly basis and/ or as needed when cases arise.
Each year the Idaho Child Fatality Review Team presents its annual report on child deaths occurring in Idaho. The team was formed by the Governor’s Task Force on Children at Risk, under Executive Order 2012-03 to review deaths to children under the age of 18, using a
comprehensive and multidisciplinary process. The team is tasked with identifying information and education that is needed to improve the health and safety of Idaho’s children. Their goal is to identify common links or circumstances in these deaths that may be addressed to prevent
similar tragedies in the future.
