Representation of ethnicity

I’ve made an attempt to add a stronger advice regarding the ‘race’ issue, and uploaded it here: Clinical Knowledge Manager

There were also some minor inconsistencies in Use section that I’ve tried to make clearer. Please have a look, and give feedback. If possible, the editorial group will facilitate a review in the near future.

All good - maybe we’re slightly at cross purposes here. I was, a little tongue in cheek, not taking responsibility for the administration and use of ‘race’ over the past 200+ years in some places. :upside_down_face:
Because it is an inherent part of clinical recording and CDS algorithms in some countries, I think we do need to include a race-related data element as part of the maximal data set. Whether the self-identified option is adequate, we have to tease out.
