Harold Shipmans Clinical Practice 1974 - 1998.
A Review Commissioned by the Chief Medical Officer.
Richard Baker. 2001.
This audit of the clinical practice of Harold Shipman was commissioned following the conviction of Dr. Shipman for the murder of 15 of his patients. The aims of the audit were to identify: The pattern of observed deaths, in particular age groups Deaths showing unusual clusters in time Deaths showing unusual clusters by place of death The relationship between certified cause of death and medical history The integrity of records The prescribing of restricted drugs. The sources of information used were: The medical certificates of cause of death (MCCDs) issued by Shipman and those issued by a comparison group of local general practitioners Surviving clinical records and cremation forms Data provided by the Prescription Pricing Authority Controlled drug registers at pharmacies in the area where Shipman worked. This clinical audit reveals clear evidence of a higher level of deaths than would have been expected over a long time period. The excess of deaths does not appear to be explicable on grounds that his practices served populations with markedly different demographic or health profiles. Typical features relating to the deaths are: A high proportion of deaths among older women A high proportion of deaths occurring at home A high proportion of deaths occurring in the afternoon Shipman was present at the death or had seen the patient shortly before death in a number of cases A high proportion of patients were certified as having died from heart problems, strokes or old age The association between clinical history and certified cause of death was often weak. A number of recommendations are made on issues such as monitoring performance in general practice, monitoring death rates, death certification procedures, general practice records, controlled drugs and the review of care of individual patients.

The Independent Inquiry into Inequalities in Health Report.
Commonly known as The Acheson Report.
Chaired by Sir Donald Acheson. 1998.
This report reviews the evidence on inequalities in health in England, including time trends. As a contribution to the Governments strategy for health, the Report identifies areas for policy development which are likely to reduce these inequalities. Arguing that the weight of scientific evidence supports a socioeconomic explanation of health inequalities, the report traces the roots of ill health to things like income, education and employment as well as material environment and lifestyle. Ultimately, the report arrives at the conclusion that three areas are crucial. All policies likely to have an impact on health should be evaluated in terms of their impact on health inequalities. A high priority should be given to the health of families with children. Further steps should be taken to reduce income inequalities and improve the living standards of poor households.

International Classification of Diseases for Oncology. (ICD-O). 3rd Edition.
Now in its third edition, the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O) has been used for nearly 25 years as the standard tool for coding diagnoses of neoplasms in tumor and cancer registrars and in pathology laboratories. ICD-O is a dual classification with coding systems for both topography and morphology. The topography code describes the site of origin of the neoplasm and uses the same 3-character and 4-character categories as in the neoplasm section of Chapter II, ICD-10. The morphology code describes the characteristics of the tumor itself, including its cell type and biologic activity. The book has five main sections. 1. general instructions for using the coding systems and rules for their implementation in tumor registries and pathology laboratories; 2. numerical list of topography codes - unchanged from the previous edition; 3. numerical list of morphology codes - introduces several new terms; 4. alphabetical index - gives codes for both topography and morphology and includes selected tumor-like lesions and conditions; 5. guide to differences in morphology codes between the second and third editions- includes lists of all new code numbers, new terms and synonyms added to existing code definitions, terms that changed morphology code, terms for conditions now considered malignant, deleted terms, and terms that changed behavior code. In preparing this new edition, the editors have made a special effort to change as few terms as possible, to add new terms at empty spaces, and to avoid reuse of previously assigned codes. To the greatest extent possible, ICD-O uses the nomenclature published in the WHO series, International Histological Classification of Tumours. Hardcover, vii + 240 pp.

ICD-10. International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Health Related Problems, 10th Revision, Second Edition. English. Due May 2005. CDROM
Summary: This new edition of WHO's International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Revision (ICD-10) has been fully updated. Originally published in the early 1990s, ICD-10 now incorporates all updates and other changes to this core health classification since 1996. In 2000, WHO formed an international panel to review and collate all adjustments to the ICD-10 proposed by many institutions around the world. Panel members consult several times a year and this definitive second edition of ICD-10 is the result of their work. The new edition has hundreds of updates, and includes new diseases such as SARS, to ensure that the classification is entirely suited to today's needs. Improvements have been made to the rules and guidelines for mortality coding, making them easier to implement and which will result in the improved comparability of international mortality statistics. In addition, there are many additions and changes to the alphabetical index resulting in some 60 additional pages, making it far more comprehensive than that of the first edition.
Features of the ICD-10 2nd edition on CD-ROM include:
. intuitive and easy-to-use interface;
. all 12,500 codes, descriptions and explanatory text compressed to one-tenth of the original data size - and will remain compressed after installation;
