Proposed Project Sudden Death in the Young Registry—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Every year, infants, children and youth die suddenly and unexpectedly from previously undiagnosed conditions. Little is known about the risk factors leading to SDY, although underlying genetic conditions contribute in some cases. For example, the risk of SDY is known to be higher for infants and children with heartrelated conditions or neurological conditions such as epilepsy. However, estimates of the annual incidence of Sudden Death in the Young (SDY) vary broadly due to differences in definitions, inconsistencies in classifying cause of death on death certificates, differing case ascertainment methodologies, and other factors. To address this gap in knowledge, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), and the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) are collaborating with selected states and partner organizations to create the Sudden Death in the Young Registry (SDYr). The SDYr will establish the first uniform reporting system for SDY based on shared standards for reviewing and classifying deaths involving infants and children <19 years of age, and the systematic participation of individuals with expertise in key medical specialties. Up to 15 state health departments will receive funding from CDC to report standardized information to a central database for compilation and analysis. In addition, each awardee PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65217 will establish an advanced clinical review team consisting of a forensic pathologist, neurologist, epileptologist, and pediatric cardiologist to supplement its existing Child Death Review (CDR) process. Specialized medical expertise is essential to the accurate determination of cause of death. The SDYr will build on ongoing collaborations involving state-based child death review teams, CDC, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the National Center for the Review and Prevention of Child Deaths (NCRPCD) at the Michigan Public Health Institute (MPHI). The MPHI–NCRPCD is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing child deaths and serious injuries. The MPHI–NCRPCD provides technical assistance and training on death scene investigation, and prevention strategies, to partner organizations including state and local governments. The MPHI–NCRPCD also supports a Web-based National Child Death Review Case Reporting System that states can use on a voluntary basis to manage their state-specific CDR data. The system is currently used by 43 states free of charge. Due to variability in case definitions and reporting procedures, the system does not produce national estimates, but serves as a vital repository of information to facilitate state-based surveillance and public health activities. Utilizing MPHI–NCRPCD Case Reporting System (CRS) infrastructure, MPHI and CDC have previously collaborated with nine states to strengthen case definition and surveillance for sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) involving infants < one year of age. The SDYr will build on this collaboration by increasing the number of participating states, systematically engaging key medical experts in the review of deaths of children <19 years of age, and requiring the collection and reporting of standardized data elements. States participating in the SDYr will report information through a special module called the NCRPCD–CRS–SDY Module. This information collection procedure was selected due to its familiarity to the majority of states, MPHI’s successful collaborations with multiple partners, and shared interest in developing and promulgating best practices for the identification, classification, and prevention of SDY. De-identified information collected through the SDYr will be used to generate estimates of the prevalence of SDY due to cardiac and neurologic conditions; to elucidate risk factors; and E:\FR\FM\03NON1.SGM 03NON1
