In May 2011, Myrna Dawson participated in a forum to discuss the recently-released report of the Queensland Domestic and Family Violence Death Review Panel. The panel was established to provide expert advice on options for strengthening coronial processes and capacity to comment on such deaths and options to identify systemic gaps and barriers to preventing such deaths. The forum was organized by the Domestic Violence Death Review Action Group. Dawson presented some of the findings to date from the Ontario Domestic Violence Death Review Committee and participated on the panel of experts for discussion following the formal presentations.
