Role of subject matter experts

Subject matter experts are an integral part of the national mortality review function.

All subject matter experts appointed on 1 July 2023 were members of the previous single mortality review committees.

Te Tāhū Hauora has appointed subject matter experts for their specialist knowledge across the workstreams the National Mortality Review Committee (NMRC) is required to review and report on.

The workstreams are:

  • child and youth mortality review –for children and young people aged 28 days to 24 years
  • perinatal and maternal mortality review – for deaths of babies and mothers
  • family violence death review – for deaths related to family violence
  • perioperative mortality review – for deaths following operative procedures.

Workstreams will change from time to time and other subject matter experts will be appointed.
