This article investigates the issue of death certification in England and Wales. The Shipman Inquiry published interim proposals designed to make the system of death certification safer and more accurate. The proposed forms were piloted by doctors and relatives on a sample of deaths in one locality. They were then interviewed to assess the forms' feasibility and acceptability.
