Need a change or addition – find out how

SKU: SCT7_110 Category:


SNOMED CT is a terminology which can represent any healthcare concept. However, healthcare changes and concepts need to change with it – the terms used to describe them and the clinical meaning inherent in the concept. New concepts need to be added and other concepts to be re-defined according to new knowledge or retired completely. This course explains how to ask for new content or changes to existing content in SNOMED CT and when such requests are relevant.
