Healthcare Events bring people together for a common purpose. By bringing the group together to one central location is a means to communicate a message to a large number of people. Healthcare Events just like all events, leave behind a legacy that I think includes:

  1. providing promotional opportunities for sponsors thus creating and building new partnerships as well as securing and developing lasting business relationships
  2. keeping event participants informed of new developments in healthcare
  3. increase in employee motivation and raising performance standards among event participants
  4. turning event participants as potential customers
  5. engagement with the local and international healthcare industry community

Here is a selected list of healthcare events in 2018 which is no doubt not exhaustive but which will be updated periodically with new healthcare events.

ICD-11 2018 version: Part 2 – The ICD-11 Menu Hierarchy

The ICD-11 Homepage at (opens in a new tab of this same open window) of the World Health Organisation (WHO) website is a specific point in time when you “Discover” the ICD-11 interface to then “Explore” to both the whole time you are looking for something about ICD-11 and the time you discovered something about ICD-11.

From this Homepage, the reader discovers a top-level menu that brings you to various “places” within the ICD-11 Homepage. Below is a chart (you can view a larger image of this chart by clicking on this chart which will open in a new tab of this same open window) from my discovery of these various “places” and what I found from my exploration.  This chart shows the ICD-11 Menu Hierarchy as I had discovered and explored. In future posts, I shall write more on each individual menu item.
