significant case reviews

Study that provides a new contribution to our learning about neglect by exploring the  circumstances in which neglect can be catastrophic and have a fatal or seriously harmful  outcome for a child. It provides a systematic analysis of neglect in serious case reviews  (local multi-agency reviews of child deaths or serious injury where abuse or neglect is known or suspected) in England, between 2003–2011.

The sixth, two yearly national analysis of such reviews (from 1 April 2009 - 31 March 2011) and the fourth undertaken. It produces a number of new insights alongside the recurring messages for practice. It also adds to the cumulative research knowledge of these cases helping to identify patterns and deviations from patterns over time.
