ICD-11 webinar for dermatology (ILDS and WHO)

The ILDS has been working in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) to develop, field test, and amend the dermatological content of both the ICD-11 MMS and the ICDD to ensure they meet the needs of health care professionals around the world in recording accurately the skin diseases of their patients.

In celebration of ICD-11 becoming the legally mandated global health data standard on 1 January 2022, the ILDS and the WHO would like to invite interested parties to join a webinar about ICD-11 on 25 January 2022 at 14:00 CET.

The webinar will be hosted by WHO. Dr. Robert Jakob, Team Leader for Classifications and Terminologies (ICD, ICF, ICHI) at the World Health Organization will give an introduction to ICD-11. Dr Robert Chalmers, Immediate Past Co-Chair of the WHO ICD-11 Dermatology Topic Advisory Group and Dermatology Representative of the WHO ICD Medical and Scientific Advisory will then talk in more detail about the ICD-11 Classification of Skin Diseases, with which he has been involved since the start of the ICD Revision Project in 2009. In the Q&A session which follows, we will be joined by Professor Jonathan White, who has taken over as Dermatology Representative of the WHO ICD Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee and external advisor on disease classification for the ILDS.
