Meeting Agenda: CECANF was established to develop a national strategy and recommendations for reducing fatalities resulting from child abuse and neglect. The purpose of the February 26-27 meeting is for Commission members to gather national and state-specific information regarding child abuse and neglect fatalities.

On February 26, Commission members will hear testimony from four panels of presenters on the following topics:

  1. Child abuse and neglect service delivery models under way in the Pacific Northwest region that are promising in the prevention of fatalities to children not known to the child welfare system
  2. Child welfare agency workforce issues that influence performance, and successful strategies for addressing these issues
  3. Status and effectiveness of key federal policies aimed at protecting children at risk of harm, and successful strategies that are being used by states, tribes, and localities that demonstrate reduced child abuse and neglect fatalities of children known to the child welfare system
  4. The legal framework that supports or limits government’s ability to intervene on behalf of children in the family context

Commission members also will continue discussing the work plans of the six Commission subcommittees and the information that they have obtained to date. On February 27, Commission members will continue their discussion of the work of the subcommittees.
