The ICD-11 was approved by the World Health Assembly in May 2019 and took effect as the basis for health reporting by WHO Member states in 2022. The ICD-11 will be implemented in clinical systems around the world over the next few years.
The new ICD-11 Clinical Descriptions and Diagnostic Requirements (CDDR) for ICD-11 Mental, Behavioural or Neurodevelopmental Disorders, developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) Department of Mental Health and Substance Use, is built on more than three decades of advances in research and practice since the publication of the ICD-10. The purpose of the ICD-11 CDDR is to guide implementation of the classification in clinical settings by psychiatrists and other relevant mental health professionals.
This 4-week live online course, sponsored by the World Psychiatric Association and the Global Mental Health Academy, will provide an overview of the key principles of the WHO’s ICD-11 and in-depth knowledge about the ICD-11 CDDG. The training faculty for the course are renowned global experts who have been deeply involved for more than a decade in leading the development, testing, and implementation of the ICD-11 classification of Mental, Behavioural or Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
This course is open to fully qualified psychiatrists and, space permitting, to psychiatry residents and other health professionals who provide services to individuals with mental, behavioural, or neurodevelopmental disorders.
