Race in Australian Context


(Sandy Sa) #1

In Australia health context, race normally referring to Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, both, or neither. SNOMED seems only cover Australian aborigine, not others, maybe it would be worth to consider standardise these vocabulary in CDM with regional consensus.

@sandysa The interesting finding! You have an opportunity to request adding these entities to the OMOP Extension vocabulary. To do that, just create a respective issue in our GitHub.
