Symptom/sign - ready for republication as a new major version

After discussion in Discourse and among editors, the Symptom/sign archetype will be republished as a new major version.

The major changes from the last published revision (25.04.2018) are as follows:

  • ‘Nil significant’ element deleted. This was always an uncomfortable modelling choice, and is now covered in a much better way by the Symptom/sign screening questionnnaire archetype
  • The internal cluster ‘Precipitating/resolving factor’ has been split into two clusters named ‘Precipitating factor’ and ‘Resolving factor’
  • The ‘Duration’ elements has had constraints added that were missing from the last published revision, and has been expanded with the data types ‘Interval of duration’ and ‘Text’.
  • Some SLOTs have been updated to include published/republished versions of the included archetypes.

Additionally, a series of change requests have been folded in and closed, some minor textual changes performed, and a translation into Dutch added. All translations will need to be updated due to the mentioned text changes.

At the same time, the following archetypes will be republished as a new minor version, to include the new major version of the Symptom/sign archetype as SLOT includes. Please add to this list if you know of more published archetypes which uses CLUSTER.symptom_sign.v1 as a SLOT include.

If you have any comments or objections, please note them here, at the latest before the planned publication date, December 1st 2022.


Republication put on hold for a little while to continue exploring the NRS/VAS/etc complex.
