POLICY

The D.C. Child and Family Services Agency (“CFSA” or “Agency”) Internal Child Fatality Review (“ICFR”) is a coordinated Agency process that aims to understand the reasons behind the deaths of children who have intersected with the child welfare system. It is integrated into the processes of the District of Columbia (“District”) Child Fatality Review committee. The goal is to reduce the number of preventable child deaths by employing continuous quality improvement methods to inform recommendations to improve Agency practice and system-wide coordination around child safety and well-being.
