Prof Nick Black recently spoke about why hospital-wide mortality ratios should be avoided and what should replace them. This conference focus on the question of mortality monitoring: where are we now? Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will look at how we can reduce and monitor avoidable deaths in hospitals through a range of measures which will replace the single hospital wide HSMR approach. The various approaches will aim to answer the question of whether a problem in care contributed to death, and how to identify which deaths attributable to problems in care are unavoidable.
