AbstractThe autopsy rate in Hong Kong has gradually declined to around 40% of all reportabled deaths. The legislation in Hong Kong mandates reporting deaths under twenty circumstances of death; yet despite reportable deaths accounting for almost 24% of all deaths in Hong Kong, the autopsy rates have shown a steady decline. This paper will present the reasons recorded in applications made by family members to the Coroner in raising their objection to an autopsy of a reportable death case. It will also look at the clinical information available and explore the need for a change in reporting practices.
