New Year, new look

Give it a few days and you’ll love it…

I have also launched a companion site to ME agenda

Dx Revision Watch

Why another site?

The concept for Dx Revision Watch developed out of research and awareness raising undertaken throughout 2009 around the forthcoming revisions of two important international disease classification systems:

The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM)

The World Health Organisation’s International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD)

DSM-5 and ICD-11 Watch will distil information already published on ME agenda site around the two revision processes and present this material in a more accessible format to a wider audience. Key information and resources will be added as more information becomes available. Updates will be posted on the rolling “Main Page”.

DSM-5 and ICD-11 Watch: Monitoring the progress of the DSM and ICD revision processes


The next edition of the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual will be DSM-5 (DSM-V). DSM-5 is now expected to be published in May 2013 – a year later than had previously been planned.

Draft changes to the DSM are expected to be posted on the DSM-5 website on 20 January 2010.

The revision of the current version of the WHO’s International Statistical Classification of Diseases, ICD-10, and the development of the structure for ICD-11 is anticipated to be completed by 2014.

The Alpha Draft for ICD-11 is timelined for May 2010.
