The Concept

2018 Q3 Newsletter

“Each and every need of all disabled children must be accurately identified and described using consistent language if the best outcomes are to be achieved”
Using SNOMED CT, a Disabilities Terminology Set (DTS) subset was created. It was designed to embrace the range of needs experienced by disabled children and their families at different stages of their care journeys, so that these could be accurately recorded. An explanatory glossary was produced in which each term was clearly explained, to encourage consistent use of the same terms across all care settings.
