Abstract

It is important to audit mortality data on a regular basis as this can provide valuable insight into hospital practice and may help to identify preventable causes of mortality. Mortality record keeping is another important aspect as variable practices in this area may have implications for cancer mortality reporting and this may ultimately lead to erroneous cancer epidemiology.
