ANZASM

 The Australian and New Zealand Audit of Surgical Mortality (ANZASM) Steering Committee is the amalgamation of the Australian state-based and New Zealand audits of surgical mortality.

The ANZASM has been formed to engage and progress the audit implementation in all regions. It provides a forum to support and guide the development of the audit in all states and New Zealand to ensure that both consistency and high standards are met.

The Chair, Professor Guy Maddern, is a senior College Councillor and a strong advocate of surgical audits. The Director is Associate Professor Wendy Babidge and the ANZASM manager is Mr Gordon Guy.

The College Council, in 2004 endorsed coordinating the bi-national roll out of Audits of Surgical Mortality. To ensure appropriate governance, standardization and consistency between the audits a bi-national approach needs to be adopted. In line with this, an Australasian Audit of Surgical Mortality Steering Committee will manage and coordinate the roll-out and maintenance of the audits. The board is accountable directly to Council for fulfilment of the responsibilities outlined in its Terms of Reference (PDF 42KB).
