Format: Two to three cases are presented/month. All mortalities are presented and morbidity is reviewed and relevant cases are presented as well. The cases are presented by the residents or attending staff and all individuals involved from other areas are invited to attend rounds, in addition to the Paediatric Medicine team. The chronology of events, 'issues' and discussion including recommendations for improvements is presented. The case is then opened up for discussion from the floor. The proceedings are summarised in the minutes which are circulated to all members of the division, as well as to the hospital-wide M&M Committee for their review.

Content/Purpose: Morbidity and mortality (M&M) reviews are conducted at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) to ensure that patient deaths and morbidity events are reviewed in a multi-disciplinary forum with the following purposes: a) to ensure that the care provided was appropriate and timely, and b) to learn from the review in order to develop new knowledge and improved systems of care delivery, if appropriate. M&M reviews should emphasize learning and prevention of similar occurrences.
