Classifications

Derived and related classifications in the WHO-FIC

The WHO Family includes a number of related and derived classifications in addition to the reference classifications.

Derived classifications

Derived classifications are based on the reference classifications( i.e. ICD and ICF) . Derived classifications may be prepared either by adopting the reference classification structure and categories, providing additional detail beyond that provided by the reference classification, or they may be prepared through rearrangement or aggregation of items from one or more reference classifications. Derived classifications in the WHO-FIC are:

Application of the International Classification of Diseases to Dentistry and Stomatology, 3rd Edition (ICD-DA)

Related classifications
