Hi Koray,

I think it would be a composition with observation and evaluation archetypes.
In my experience on surveillance program, your form could be built up
these items.
 History of medication, smoking
 Diagnosis, GP assessment status
 Medication(GP prescribed/prescribing)

However, I am not sure which should be.
