Anaesthesia morbidity and mortality meetings: a practical toolkit for improvement
This document provides a practical set of tools and methods for structuring effective Morbidity and Mortality meetings.
While it is targeted at anaesthetists, the ideas and principles are relevant to a wide range of specialist areas. The aim of the toolkit is to support and improve the quality of presentation and learning outcomes from M&M meetings. The guidance is based around using the ‘SBAR’ approach to standardising clinical communications: Situation, Background, Assessment and Analysis, Review of literature and Recommendations.
