I need to map a structured education course into FHIR but I cannot find any resources for it
The course will have these properties:
Course Start Date,
Course End Date
Course Level (1 to 5) - these are attendances (not bookings),
Training would be Procedure. Course Name = Procedure.code (or code.text), start/end = Procedure.performedPeriod. Course level would probably be best as an extension, though you could theoretically abuse Procedure.category.
Thanks @lloyd ,
I always think to be careful in choosing resources when they do not clearly match my dataset; if you guys say that I can use procedures in this case then I will…
My only doubt is that in the “procedure” description say that “An action that is being or was performed on a patient” Can we
say that a course is an action?
Training is an action that’s intended to modify the patient’s knowledge, so it definitely falls within the scope. Feel free to submit a change request to have that made explicit though.
Thanks, no reason for me to open a change request , your clarification is enough. I will use that resource as suggested.
