ICD-10: 2008 Edition - Volumes 1, 2 and 3 (not sold separately)
- World Health Organisation (WHO)
This new edition of WHO's International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Revision (ICD-10) has been fully updated. Originally published in the early 1990s, ICD-10 now incorporates all updates and other changes to this core health classification since 1996 up to the end of 2008.
Fifteen years of daily international use of the classification have resulted in many improvements, and these have been incorporated into volume 1, the index, rules and guidelines. As a result, the classification is now easier to use and implement, accommodates new scientific knowledge, makes it easier to understand health statistics and improves comparability of international mortality statistics. The thousands of changes that have been introduced are based on about 400 recommendations for Volume 1, 90 recommendations for Volume 2, and more than 700 recommendations for Volume 3. They are the product of a continuous international collaboration.
Based on 17 years' practical experience in providing training for ICD-10 in the WHO Network for the Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC)
Takes advantage of state of the art technology to enhance content and structure
Easy and intuitive to use, specifically designed to enhance the training and learning experience.
