Usage Description :    
This SNOMED CT subset has been developed by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) to enable capturing and sharing of information in the EHR in a consistent way. The CSP is developing a large number of subsets, which are seen as ‘building blocks’ to enable use locally according to the specific requirements of the service. The subset will be updated over time based on feedback from usage in health care systems, and has been built based on what is captured in records. Whilst this has been developed based on Physiotherapy usage, it is expected that other professions may also use the subset. The CSP is also in touch with organisations internationally who are interested in sharing the work and learning lessons, with the increased uptake in the use of SNOMED CT internationally.
