Morbidity/mortality meetings

The purpose of a morbidity and mortality meeting is to review the anaesthesia management and to determine whether it contributed to mortality or morbidity, and how these could have been averted. There is usually a high degree of interaction and discussion, and anaesthetists involved in individual cases should be participants.
