The common notion of "procedure" is broader than that specified by the HL7 Version
3 Reference Information Model (RIM). Therefore procedure templates can be
represented with various RIM classes: act (e.g., dressing change), observation (e.g.,
EEG), procedure (e.g. splenectomy).
This clinical statement represents any procedure that cannot be classified as an
observation or a procedure according to the HL7 RIM. Examples of these procedures
are a dressing
change, teaching or feeding a patient or providing comfort measures.
