Project Description

SNOMED CT – Systematised Nomenclature of Medicine – Clinical Terms – is the common clinical language that will replace Read Codes within the NHS. SNOMED CT is a comprehensive clinical terminology that makes healthcare information accessible and usable across the globe.

SNOMED provides a “common language” comprised of concepts, terms and relationships that enable a consistent way of capturing, sharing and aggregating health data across clinical specialties and different sites of care.

This one-day interactive workshop will give delegates a clear understanding of both the transactional elements of SNOMED CT and the transformational change it will bring about. The workshop will provide a strategic overview of why it is to be adopted and an operational understanding of how to meet the deadline for all GP practices to have transitioned, both Read v2 and CTV3, to SNOMED CT from April 2018.

Delegates will develop their own Action Plan, so they understand what this means for their practices, what is likely to happen automatically and what they are likely to need to do for themselves. By now you should be aware that SNOMED CT will become the standard clinical terminology system used in general practice from April next year.

** SNOMED CT® resulted from the merger of SNOMED® Reference Terminology (SNOMED® RT) developed by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and Clinical Terms Version 3 (CTV3) developed by the UK National Health Service (NHS). As a comprehensive clinical reference terminology, it enables clinicians, researchers and patients to share comparable data while facilitating enhanced health reporting, billing and statistical analysis.

The key objective of this workshop is to extend the depth and breadth of your knowledge of SNOMED CT and will provide authoritative coverage of a broad range of topics related to SNOMED CT.

Yes, it’s for you… if you are seeking a broad foundational knowledge of SNOMED CT to help you in your current role or future career.

How much do I need to know about SNOMED before I start? There are no specific requirements for prior knowledge of SNOMED CT. This course is a good starting point for you to learn about SNOMED.  However, if you have existing knowledge of SNOMED CT, the course is an opportunity to fill gaps, perhaps dispel a few common misunderstandings and demonstrate knowledge required to join more advanced SNOMED CT E-Learning courses.

Why should I take this course? The knowledge you gain during the course will be of direct value if you are engaged in roles or tasks that need an understanding of the fundamental aspects of SNOMED CT.
