Comparison of military and civilian methods for determining potentially preventable deaths: a systematic review.

Janak JC, Sosnov JA, Bares JM, et al. JAMA surgery. 2018;153:367-375.

This systematic review compared military mortality reviews to nonmilitary studies of pre- or in-hospital mortality reviews. The authors note widely varying review processes, data inclusion, and preventability assessment, and recommend standardization of definitions and processes in order to reduce bias.
