Principles of the morbidity and mortality conference

Principles of the morbidity and mortality conference

Acta Neurochirurgica. Suppl. 78: 125-126

The goals of the morbidity and mortality conference are learning from mistakes, recognising problems, and being aware of the risks of one's own procedures. Data are continuously collected, complications are classified, and the results of surgery are analyzed. By analysing and discussing the results every three months, total case mortality, mortality of specific procedures, incidence of haematomas, infection rate and incidence of thromboses and emboli are known and a continuous quality control is possible.
