Abstract

Will you be disbelieving, dismissive, disheartened or alert to the dangers after reading the study in this issue of the MJA that identified potentially inappropriate care in Australian hospitals?1 Using routine hospital admissions data, Duckett and colleagues found that five procedures not supported by clinical evidence happen more than 100 times a week and there is great variation in hospital-specific rates of procedures that should not be done routinely.
