Hi Pekka!

VAS is a quantification of the severity of a symptom, which could be pain or other symptoms. When the international Symptom/Sign archetype was reviewed and published, the element “Severity rating” was included to cater for VAS or other severity scales. For now, there are no plans to make a specific archetype for pain in the international space, as the generic Symptom/Sign archetype should support all generic requirements. The former (draft) Pain specialisation of the (draft) Symptom archetype was rejected for this reason.

Hi all,

Looking for an archetype for recording VAS scale. Searching suggested that there used to be a CLUSTER.Symptom-pain [Pain symptom] archetype in the international CKM.

I could only find it from the NEHTA CKM but not from the international one. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,

-Pekka
