About this Unit
This unit is designed to enable the student to classify diseases and interventions using the current version of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision, Australian Modification, the Australian Classification of Health Interventions and the Australian Coding Standards (ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS). The unit will also include the historical development of clinical classification systems as well as the purpose and value of classifying diseases and interventions within the health system. The students will become familiar with the structure and content of ICD-10-AM ACHI/ACS and be introduced to the rules and conventions associated within ICD-10-AM/ACHI. Further, students will carry out research based analytical tasks gaining an in-depth knowledge in relation to health classification systems and terminology systems such as SNOMED-CT (Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine - Clinical Terms).
