Surgical M&M Conference

Every Wednesday from 6:00 – 7:00am


Due to Covid-19 restrictions, M&M Conference is held remotely via Zoom until further notice



In keeping with our ongoing commitment and dedication to patient safety, high-quality healthcare, and process development, a variety of activities are designed to facilitate improvement and enhance a culture of safety. Morbidity and Mortality (M&M) conferences are designed to provide a time for clinical members of the department to gather and confidentially discuss ways to improve all aspects based on actual episodes of patient care. M&M also aims to promote professionalism, ethical integrity, and transparency in assessing medical errors, complications, and unanticipated outcomes as well as provide educational content for residents and students.  M&M should be attended by Duke Faculty, Fellows, Residents, and APPs only.
