WFOT: join the Global Clinical Practice Network for Mental and Behavioural Disorders
The World Health Organization’s Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse is forming a global network of mental health professionals to help inform the development of the classification of Mental and Behavioural Disorders for the next version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), currently planned for publication in 2017.
The World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) is encouraging occupational therapists, working in the mental health field, to lend their professional experience to help develop the ICD-11 by registering for WHO’s Global Clinical Practice Network (GCPN).
As a part of this international group of health professionals, you will be asked to provide information and feedback, to WHO, based on your clinical expertise, experience, and knowledge as they develop the new classification of mental and behavioural disorders. This is of vital importance to ensuring that the new classification is clinically useful, easy to use and accurate.
