Fetal Infant Mortality Review
Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) is a community-based program that works to address issues and factors that may affect fetal and infant mortality or morbidity. FIMR is dedicated to improving the services and resources for women, infants, and their families to reduce the occurrence of infant or fetal deaths within the community.
Community-based health professionals come together as a team to analyze the basic statistical and epidemiological aspect of fetal and infant mortality. These groups will select objectives, plans, and manage the review process.
The team has two roles, case review and Community Action. The multidisciplinary FIMR team reviews selected fetal and infant deaths and determines if factors associated with death represent systemic challenges that require change.
The team also develops and implements interventions needed to reduce or eliminate factors contributing to the preventable fetal and infant mortality.
The 2007-2011 FIMR Data report is available HERE.
