The requirement is to add an ‘original_text’ attribute to term definitions to handle very wordy but ‘official’ questions associated with some scales and scores. THe authors/copyright holders are often anxious that these are faithfully represented.
["at0027"] = < text = <"During the past week had difficulty in concentrating"> description = <"Has the patient had difficulty in concentrating"> comment = <"Ensure original text is used in any user interface"> original_text = <"During the past week: Have you had difficulty in concentrating on things, like reading a newspaper or watching television?"> >
Explained in more detail here](See 'Original text' for scales and scores/ instruments?)
There seems to general support from modellers and tool vendors I have spoken to.
@thomas.beale @pieterbos @borut.fabjan @yampeku @sebastian.garde - As far as I can tell, it does not require a spec change - we already routinely add
comment to the term_definitions even though this is not explicitly defined in the specs.
I’m not sure if these additional reserved terms need to be documented anywhere.
