Health services must report certain serious injuries, deaths, safety incidents and other issues to us or the independent councils we support.

Reporting this information helps us understand systems and processes that work well. It also helps us to identify opportunities for improvements.

We share this data with health services to help them identify areas for enhancements. On this website we also:

Notify us of the most serious cases of patient harm and death that have resulted from adverse patient safety events.
Report births and all perinatal, infant, and child/adolescent deaths to the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Paediatric Mortality and Morbidity (CCOPMM).
How to report congenital anomalies for live births, stillbirths and terminations of pregnancy to the Victorian Congential Anomalies Register (VCAR).
Report maternal deaths and serious harm to the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Paediatric Mortality and Morbidity (CCOPMM).
Report all surgical and anaesthesia-related harm and death to the Victorian Perioperative Consultative Council (VPCC).
Submit forms and permit applications under Victoria’s voluntary assisted dying laws.
We will help you learn how to review adverse patient safety events and improve out of them
