OBJECTIVE: Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) will be introduced in ICD-11 and comprises symptoms of PTSD and disturbances in self-organisation (DSO). The association of trauma with PTSD and DSO is not yet fully understood. We investigated the path from child maltreatment to PTSD and DSO and examined the mediating role of emotion regulation (ER) and adult interpersonal re-victimisation. METHOD: Adult patients (N = 193) from a Scottish National Health Service clinic participated in the project...

We investigated the dimensionality and possible measurement bias of ICD-11 Nicotine Dependence (ND) criteria in a sample of smokers from a middle-income country. Data are from the São Paulo Megacity Project (part of World Mental Health Surveys) collected between 2005 and 2007 (n = 5,037). The current analyses were restricted to the 1,388 participants who smoked at least once a week for 2 months in their lifetime. Item response theory (IRT) was used to investigate the severity and discrimination properties of 8 selected criteria...

BACKGROUND: The World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Disease (ICD-11) is expected to include a new diagnosis for prolonged grief disorder (ICD-11PGD). This study examines the validity and clinical utility of the ICD-11PGD guideline by testing its performance in a well-characterized clinical sample and contrasting it with a very different criteria set with the same name (PGDPLOS). METHODS: We examined data from 261 treatment-seeking participants in the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)-sponsored multicenter clinical trial to determine the rates of diagnosis using the ICD-11PGD guideline and compared these with diagnosis using PGDPLOS criteria...

The letter by Kraus et al. (2018) published recently in World Psychiatry presents diagnostic criteria for compulsive sexual behaviors (CSBs). Here, we discuss the potential impact of including CSB disorder in ICD-11 for four areas: educational efforts related to CSB (for both clinicians and patients), investigation of underlying mechanisms and subtypes, development of personalized treatment frameworks, and answering socially important questions and advancing important prevention efforts and effective policies...

Objective: To examine the empirical basis for including the diagnostic category of "a single episode of harmful substance use" in the 11th revision of the International statistical classification of diseases and related health problems (ICD-11). Methods: We used data on patients admitted to emergency departments in 21 countries with alcohol-related injuries (i.e. with drinking within the preceding six hours) who had no sign of alcohol intoxication or withdrawal, no alcohol in blood and no sign of alcohol dependence or harmful drinking as described in the ICD-10...

The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) is the worldwide binding standard for generating underlying cause-of-death statistics. OBJECTIVES: What are the effects of former revisions of the ICD on underlying cause-of-death statistics and which opportunities and challenges are becoming apparent in a possible transition process from ICD-10 to ICD-11?This article presents the calculation of the exploitation grade of ICD-9 and ICD-10 in the German cause-of-death statistics and quality of documentation...

In addition to medical innovations, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) addresses the changing needs of digitized healthcare systems. This article describes the concept and developmental structure of the ICD-11.The new technical structure of the ICD-11 allows for a considerably simplified use of the classification and at the same time significantly improves the ability to record individual health conditions at the desired level of detail. The integration of the entire contents and structural information of the ICD-11 in an ontologically organized all-encompassing structure, the so called "foundation", in combination with the connected online platforms is a step into the future...

Background: The World Health Organization will publish its 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) in 2018. The ICD-11 will include a refined model of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a new diagnosis of complex PTSD (CPTSD). Whereas emerging data supports the validity of these proposals, the discriminant validity of PTSD and CPTSD have yet to be tested amongst a sample of refugees. Methods: Treatment-seeking Syrian refugees ( N  = 110) living in Lebanon completed an Arabic version of the International Trauma Questionnaire ; a measure specifically designed to capture the symptom content of ICD-11 PTSD and CPTSD...

BACKGROUND: A study conducted as part of the development of the Eleventh International Classification of Mental Disorders for Primary Health Care (ICD-11 PHC) provided an opportunity to test the relationships among depressive, anxious and somatic symptoms in PHC. METHOD: Primary care physicians participating in the ICD-11 PHC field studies in five countries selected patients who presented with somatic symptoms not explained by known physical pathology by applying a 29-item screening on somatic complaints that were under study for bodily stress disorder...

The revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) could change morbidity and mortality statistics significantly, which also affects the area of infectious diseases. Infectious diseases are classified according to their etiology, affected body system or the life period during which the episode occurs. Specific challenges arise from emerging pathogens and the respective necessary adaptation. For epidemiologic analysis ICD-10 does not always offer enough additional information.ICD provides the basis for international comparison of infectious disease morbidity and mortality statistics, but it is also used to collect data for surveillance and research purposes, e...

BACKGROUND: Medical documentation is no longer used primarily for administrative processes or healthcare billing, but for the entire electronic health record with accompanying eHealth use cases. OBJECTIVES: It shall be examined to what extent classifications such as the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11) and the International Classification of Health Interventions (ICHI), in comparison to the international reference terminology SNOMED CT, meet the requirements of current eHealth applications and ensure interoperability...

BACKGROUND: The World Health Organization (WHO) has been developing the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) since 2007. ICD-11 is different from the ICD-10 in volume and structure. Therefore, the WHO planned field tests with a coding of diagnoses and cases. OBJECTIVES: To describe the background of the field tests and their implementation in Germany. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Interested parties were invited to submit proposals through a call to the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF)...

The identification of treatment errors, the so-called "undesirable" or "critical incidents", is crucial for improving and developing the quality of care. The new International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems-ICD-11-supports a structured data collection in the context of the quality of care and patient safety. Documentation conceptually relies on the multiple coding of the three dimensions of a critical incident: harm, cause, and mode. In this way, it is possible to capture the event in great detail, including the reasons for it and the effects it has...

BACKGROUND: Dhat syndrome is regarded by many as a culture bound syndrome of the Indian sub-continent. However the nosological status, conceptual understanding of the condition as well as the diagnostic guidelines are all mired in controversy. AIMS: The current study aims to study the psychopathology of Dhat syndrome in men by using a qualitative approach and to arrive at an operational definition for diagnosing Dhat syndrome. METHOD: The qualitative approach consisted of five Focus Group Discussions (FGD) and five Key Individual Interviews (KII) with participants, consisting of patients as well as doctors - both allopathic as well as traditional...

In line with ICD-11 new conceptualization of Adjustment disorder (AjD), a self-report Adjustment Disorder-New Module (ADNM) was developed and validated. Nevertheless, the ADNM-20 is a long research tool and potentially problematic in the use in epidemiological and clinical studies. The present study introduces the brief ADNM-8 and the ultra-brief ADNM-4, examines their validity and establishes cut-off scores for their clinical use. The study used a representative national sample of 1003 Israelis who reported on the ICD-11 stress spectrum ranging from AjD, PTSD, complex PTSD and complicated grief...

Primary care physicians in Germany don't benefit from coding diagnoses-they are coding for the needs of others. For coding, they mostly are using either the thesaurus of the German Institute of Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDI) or self-made cheat-sheets. Coding quality is low but seems to be sufficient for the main use case of the resulting data, which is the morbidity adjusted risk compensation scheme that distributes financial resources between the many German health insurance companies.Neither the International Classification of Diseases and Health Related Problems (ICD-10) nor the German thesaurus as an interface terminology are adequate for coding in primary care...

The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) provides a standardized language of almost 1500 ICF categories for coding information about functioning and contextual factors. Short lists (ICF Core Sets) are helpful tools to support the implementation of the ICF in clinical routine. In this paper we report on the implementation of ICF Core Sets in clinical routine using the "ICF Core Sets for Hand Conditions" and the "Lighthouse Project Hand" as an example. Based on the ICF categories of the "Brief ICF Core Set for Hand Conditions", the ICF-based assessment tool (ICF HandA ) was developed aiming to guide the assessment and treatment of patients with injuries and diseases located at the hand...

There has been much debate regarding the extent to which different types and patterns of gaming may be considered harmful from individual and public health perspectives. A recent event in which a hospitalized patient was reported to have died while a care provider was gaming is worth considering as an example as to how gaming may distract individuals from work-related tasks or other activities, with potential negative consequences. As the 11th edition of the International Classification of Diseases is being developed, events like these are important to remember when considering entities like, and generating criteria for, disordered or hazardous gaming...
