For DSM-V watchers (and I’m sure I can’t be the only one) – new papers in the January 2010 edition of the Journal of Psychosomatic Research.

In Letter to the editor: The proposed diagnosis of somatic symptom disorders in DSM-V to replace somatoform disorders in DSM-IV-A preliminary report: Joel E. Dimsdale, Francis H. Creed, the authors write:

“We are pleased that the authors of these letters appreciate our efforts to be open regarding the proposed changes to the diagnostic criteria of the Somatoform Disorders chapter of DSM-V.”

Note there have been no updates published by the APA DSM-V revision Task Force since the March 09 Task Force report and April 09 updates from the 13 DSM-V Work Groups.

So much for APA (American Psychiatric Association) transparency!

DSM-V and ICD-11 have committed as far as possible “to facilitate the achievement of the highest possible extent of uniformity and harmonization between ICD-11 mental and behavioural disorders and DSM-V disorders and their diagnostic criteria” with the objective that “the WHO and APA should make all attempts to ensure that in their core versions, the category names, glossary descriptions and criteria are identical for ICD and DSM.”

The International Advisory Group for the Revision of ICD-10 Mental and Behavioural Disorders most recent meeting took place on 28 – 29 September. It is anticipated that a Summary Report of the meeting will be available in December.

For detailed information on the proposed structure of ICD-11, the Content Model and operation of iCAT, the collaborative authoring platform through which the WHO will be revising ICD-10, please scrutinise key documents on the ICD-11 Revision Google site:
