“Omni-Source” of Information
Since November 1992, the State Technical Assistance Team has become an "umbrella" unit for several programs and services relating to children’s events. In addition to the Child Fatality Review Program, STAT is also responsible for implementing HB 1370 which provides training and assistance for county-based child sexual abuse teams. Panel and team membership is very similar, as is their need for services and support. In essence, STAT has become an "omni-source" for information and assistance to the professional community that responds to child fatalities and serious abuse and neglect issues.
