Avoidable mortality in the United States and Canada, 1980-1996


In this study the researchers examined avoidable mortality in the United States and Canada from 1980 to 1996. They postulated that there may be differences in avoidable mortality between the 2 countries, and that, if differences existed, avoidable mortality might be a useful population-based outcome measure that would encourage further evaluation and improvement of health care systems.
