ICD-11 Training Package
Welcome to the online course "ICD – 11 tool" developed by the Direction of Evidence and Intelligence by Action in Health and the Virtual Campus of Public Health of the Pan American Health Organization. It is relevant that the countries of the region know and apply the ICD- 11 in order to have a common framework and language to report, complete, use and share health information at a national and international level.
The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is a tool for recording, reporting, and grouping conditions and factors that influence health. It contains categories for diseases, health related conditions, and external causes of illness or death.
The purpose of the ICD is to allow the systematic recording, analysis, interpretation and comparison of mortality and morbidity data collected in different countries or areas and at different times. The ICD is used to translate diagnoses of diseases and other health problems into an alphanumeric code, which allows storage, retrieval, and analysis of the data. Such health information is used for epidemiology, prevention, managing health care, allocation of resources, outcomes monitoring, in research, and primary care.
At the end of the course, the student will be able to:
- Identify the structure of ICD-11.
