Data for Health launches MCCOD e-learning for physicians and medical students
TAGS

Accurate medical certification of death plays a critical role in the generation of high-quality mortality data, but certifying physicians are often working in time-poor, high-pressure settings. In response to this issue, Data for Health is excited to share their course, which will allow both undergraduate and early-career physicians to gain a comprehensive understanding of MCCOD that can be easily applied to their work. The instructions provided in the two courses are based on the full version of the WHO 2016 medical certificate of cause of death.

To learn more about the breakdown of the courses, and to register, please visit www.crvsgateway.info.
