ICPC use is growing in any domain of GP/FM as clinical tool. Nevertheless, family doctor work area and work load need specific descriptors in order to fulfil the following objectives
+Global description of activity, skills and knowledge (except health problems, procedure and diseases)
+Classification complementary to ICPC (expanded from Q codes Lamberts et all, circa 1987).
+Descriptors needed for indexation.
+Main axes of training for undergraduate and vocational
All those items aim to describe the content of GP/FM in its non clinical approach. They constitute meta-information on the way the clinics and the patient doctor relationships are driven.
The Q codes, developed by Lamberts et all circa 1985 for use in bibliographic retrieval in Amsterdam University (UVA) department of GP/FM form the first building blocks of the classification. This first approach has been filled up with my personal experience along 30 years of practice, research and teaching. From this as an empirical document, one try to change, fill the gaps and modify the content of the classification. About Safety, one has chosen to distribute the concept over all the classification when adequate rather than a special category.
First proposal :
8 categories have been designed:
1. Patient issues
2. Provider's issues
3. Structure of practice
4. Patient"s categories
5. Hazards
6. Ethics
7. Training, teaching, editing
8. R & D tools
