Issue

Need to refine the function of the entity as part of the particular Informant and Performer participations

Recomendation

  • Add functionCode to Performer and Informant participations

Rationale

Performer and Informant participations common associated with very general roles, which do not provide much information about what the participant's specific function was as part of a particular participation. The functionCode can indicate that an AssignEntity is the primary care physician as part of the Performer participation associated with a Care Provision act. Other examples include anesthesist, midwife, etc. This also applies to informant, a nurse assistant may provide some information which was mentioned by the subject before they became unconcious and simarly, a Neighbour who is a part time care may provide some information.
