Family Violence Death Review Committee Report

June 28, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Following a review of family violence deaths, the Family Violence Death Review Committee (FVDRC) is recommending developing a multi-agency case management process for high-risk cases of family violence.

It also recommends placing a bigger focus on the safety and wellbeing of surviving family members following a family violence death.

The FVDRC analysed deaths that occurred in family violence incidents in New Zealand during 2009 and 2010, and conducted in-depth, qualitative reviews on nine deaths that occurred during 2010 and 2011. It found all deaths were preventable. Most homicides involved intimate partner violence, child abuse and neglect or other family members violence. Read more in the press release.
