Kia āta kōwhiri Choosing Wisely

The Choosing Wisely campaign seeks to reduce harm from unnecessary and low-value tests and treatment.

Te Tāhū Hauora Health Quality & Safety Commission has established a national mortality review function comprising:

  • a National Mortality Review Committee (NMRC)
  • subject matter experts appointed to provide expert advice on NMRC’s mortality review workstreams
  • a National Mortality Review Function Management Group (a division of Te Tāhū Hauora).

The purpose of this function is to review and report on mortality through the collection, analysis and review of mortality data on specific classes of death with the aim of preventing future premature death and promoting continuous quality improvement.

The ability of Te Tāhū Hauora to establish this function is supported by legislation
