ICD-11 Field Testing – IASP Needs Your Help


The IASP needs your help! Field-tested data is an important component of a new chronic pain classification that the IASP ICD-11 Task Force will submit to the World Health Organization. By participating in the field testing during July-August 2017, you can help ensure that the task force’s classification proposal is included in ICD-11, which will contribute to the improvement of the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain.

The field testing will occur in two parts:

  1. an introductory training course; and
  2. knowledge test, followed by a study on the WHO ICD-FiT platform.

The IASP appreciates your support of this effort. Please contact the IASP directly if you have any questions about the process.
