Join the new WHO Global Clinical Practice Network. Revision of the ICD-10.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is forming a global network of mental health professionals to help the development of the classification of Mental and Behavioral Disorders in next version of the International Classification of Diseases (the ICD-11), which is currently planned for publication in 2015.
The ICD is designed as a health care classification system like the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), but provides a system of diagnostic codes for all kind of diseases; it’s not limited to mental disorders.
Your participation in the Global Clinical Practice Network (GCPN) would involve reviewing materials, giving your feedback about ideas or concepts that are developing as part of the ICD-11 classification of mental disorders, or participating in specific types of field studies.
Registration for the GCPN takes 5 to 10 minutes, and is available in eight languages. As of March 2013, the GCPN has over 3500 members and they expect that number to grow up to 10,000 by mid-2013.
Their hope is to see the GCPN expand, beyond the ICD-11 development process, and develop into a useful collaborative and information-sharing tool in the future for mental health and primary care professionals world-wide.
Full Global Clinical Practice Network website will be coming soon. For info mail info@gcpmail.net
