Excerpt
The series of articles in this report document the value of autopsy in health care and health statistics and provides educational information about completing cause-of-death statements. Autopsy information has long been an essential tool for quality control of medical care and for enhancing the quality of cause-of-death information reported on the death certificate. Recognizing that the use of autopsy has declined considerably in the past 50 years as documented in vital statistics, the autopsy is nevertheless regarded as an important tool in medical practice and in improving the cause-of-death data. An ample body of literature shows not only the medical values of autopsy, but also its importance in bench marking the quality of cause-of-death data.
