Subset Description :
This subset identifies benzodiazepine and benzodiazepine related medicines to support the Learning Disabilities Observatory. It does not include any benzodiazepines that are normally only prescribed for epilepsy treatment, but does include benzodiazepines that are prescribed for epilepsy and other indications. It also contains the benzodiazepine related medications referred to as the 'Z-drugs'. This subset is created using the XML format dm+d data and so within this subset a small number of concepts may be inactive (status 2 or 10) in the International Release. Contains all VMPs and AMPs associated with the following VTMs: Alprazolam Chlordiazepoxide Diazepam Flurazepam Loprazolam Lorazepam Lormetazepam Nitrazepam Oxazepam Temazepam Zaleplon Zolpidem Zopiclone

Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

   
Usage Type :    
Intended
Usage Description :    
Intended for secondary uses purposes. The Learning Disabilities Observatory (LDO) is working on the Health and Care Project, which aims to get a more detailed understanding of the health of people with learning disabilities in each part of the country, the care they get and how this compares to the health and care of people who don't have learning disabilities. More information on the Learning Disabilities Observatory can be found here: https://digital.nhs.uk/services/general-practice-gp-collections/service-information/learning-disabilities-observatory These subsets are created using the XML format dm+d data and so within these subsets a small number of concepts may be inactive (status 2 or 10) in the SNOMED CT International Release. The origin of these inactive concepts is the native XML dm+d and they are now inactive in the new International Release due to natural movement and updating of the International Release content. Work is underway to update the dm+d concepts to the new International release identifiers; at this point this mismatch will be resolved. If using the dm+d in SNOMED CT format the International Release relationships will enable migration to the replacement concept.
