Hi Silje,

has a codable attribute 'function' for this purpose (calling it 
'function' rather than 'role' came from 13606). It may be that you want 
to state a 'role' as well, i.e. to say that a certain /kind of person/ 
is required, and then use function to state the actual function that 
person is supposed to do in the particular activity in question.

I would have expected 'function' to be sufficient for your example - 
just use 2 x other_participations on the OBSERVATION.

An example of needing both could be something like:

  * role = nurse
  * function = foley catheterisation

Currently 'role' is only known in the demographic model, i.e. on the 
other side of the PARTY_PROXY.external_ref link. It may make sense to 
add a role attribute to PARTICIPATION at some point if we need to 
distinguish the type of person (qualification) from what they do in the
