Shortcut partcipation of a causative agent associated with an observation, e.g. allergy caused by peanuts.


  • Add proposed Causative Agent (CAUS) participation from Observation to Agent choice box (proposed in CSCR-043)


An allergy/intolerance is commonly represented as an observation/condition and the associated causative agent. To represent this simple/shortcut Allergy representation, the causative agent particpation directly associated from the obseravtion is required.


23/2/06 TC discussion add a cautionary remark to state that the domain using this needs to make sure any ambiguity created by using short cuts must try to reduce any ambiguity as much as possible. HB suggested that if harmonisation passes this will trigger acceptance. CB suggested this may be impacted by harmonisation decision.

Recommeded Action Items
