Description: Children’s National Hospital has identified reducing infant mortality as one of its strategic priorities. In order to develop an infant mortality reduction plan for the Goldberg Center for Community Pediatric Health, a retrospective review of records was deemed necessary to determine the modifiable risk factors. In this session, we will present the Goldberg Center Infant Mortality Risk Identification data and ongoing research endeavors in developing a risk assessment tool and risk stratification system to identify high risk infants and prompt early intervention.
