91. Use of electronic death certificates for influenza death surveillance(1.). Full Text available with Trip Pro

Use of electronic death certificates for influenza death surveillance(1.). Surveillance for influenza deaths has been used to gauge the severity of influenza seasons. Traditional surveillance, which relies on medical records review and laboratory testing, might not be sustainable during a pandemic. We examined whether electronic death certificates might provide a surveillance alternative. We compared information retrieved from electronic death certificates that listed influenza (or a synonym (...) ) with information retrieved from medical charts on which influenza deaths were reported by traditional means in Los Angeles County, California, USA, during the 2009 influenza A(H1N1) pandemic and 2 subsequent influenza seasons. Electronic death certificate surveillance provided timely information, matched the demographics and epidemiologic curve of that obtained from traditional influenza-related death surveillance, and had a moderately positive predictive value. However, risk factors were underreported

93. Observations on Surgeons' Case Selection, Morbidity, and Mortality Following Board Certification. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Observations on Surgeons' Case Selection, Morbidity, and Mortality Following Board Certification. The purpose of this study is to determine if patient selection varies based on years of surgical practice.The impact of hospital and surgeon volume as a marker of experience has demonstrated an inverse association with surgical outcomes. However, temporal measures of experience often demonstrate no effect. Additionally, a self-reporting survey demonstrated decreasing case complexity over time (...) before selecting lower risk patients throughout the rest of their career. After adjusting for risk, no association was observed between years from board certification and mortality. However, there was a trend toward decreasing complication rates with increasing experience.Surgical experience significantly impacts patient selection. Surgeons with over 25 years of experience had lower complication rates. Experience had no impact on mortality.

Saving lives through certifying deaths: assessing the impact of two interventions to improve cause of death data in Perú. Mortality statistics derived from cause of death data are an important source of information for population health monitoring, priority setting and planning. In Perú, almost all death certificates are issued by doctors because it is a legal requirement. However, the quality of cause of death data is poor. In August 2016, the Ministry of Health of Perú decided to make two (...) specific interventions to improve cause of death data: to introduce an online death certification system and to train doctors in standard death certification practices.The study comprised a random sample of 300 pre-intervention death certificates, 900 death certificates that were part of the online intervention, and 900 death certificates that were part of both the online and training interventions.

Monitoring progress in reducing maternal mortality using verbal autopsy methods in vital registration systems: what can we conclude about specific causes of maternal death? Reducing maternal mortality is a key focus of development strategies and one of the indicators used to measure progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. In the absence of medical certification of the cause of deaths that occur in the community, verbal autopsy (VA) methods are the only available means (...) to assess levels and trends of maternal deaths that occur outside health facilities. The 2016 World Health Organization VA Instrument facilitates the identification of eight specific causes of maternal death, yet maternal deaths are often unsupervised, leading to sparse and generally poor symptom reporting to inform a reliable diagnosis using VAs. There is little research evidence to support the reliable identification of specific causes of maternal death in the context of routine VAs. We recommend
