    Abstract

    The Australian Safety and Efficacy Register for New Interventional Procedures - Surgical (ASERNIP-S) undertakes horizon scanning, systematic reviews and audits. By disseminating information derived from these processes, ASERNIP-S aims to improve the quality of health care. In the present article, we discuss some of the legal and ethical issues surrounding the collection of identified data for the purposes of audit. The individual's right to privacy is considered as well as the benefits of improving the quality of surgical health care.
