; Papaevangelou, George; Sequeira, M. Studies of the maternal and infant mortality rate have been useful. About 10 Out of 14 medical health care indicators occurred in less than 50 cases per year. Thus, when extending the application of the avoidable mortality method to developing countries European Community Atlas of Avoidable Death would be useful to make a revision of the choice of indicators. Maternal mortality was highest in the Midland Health board and lowest in the Southern Health Board.
Series Commission of the European Communities health services research series ;, no. According to the original idea, an agglomeration of avoidable deaths is a warning signal motivating in-depth studies of the quality of care. Progress in the development of indicators and the quality and outcome of health care has lagged behind that of measures of process and efficiency.Cayolla da Motta, L.
In the late 1970s, an American working group chaired by David D Rutstein introduced a method for measuring the quality of medical care.

Prescribed fenoterol and death from asthma in New Zealand, 1981—83: case-control study. Many of these causes of death have been rare in industrialized countries but they may be useful as indicators in developing countries. Thus, the general pattern of decreasing avoidable death rates previously found in industrialized countries seems to be valid also in developing countries. Spain and Portugal are now included.Bouvier-Colle, Marie-HeleneCarstairs, V.
Both ethnic and gender differences were found. Ireland had the highest mortality for tuberculosis in both time periods.
Taking the EC as a whole as the standard 100 population the standardised mortality ratio SMR in Ireland in the period 1980-1984 for tuberculosis was 160, for asthma 180 and maternal mortality 58.
A promising reduction in avoidable death rates was also found when compared to other causes of death.
