This code system http://hl7.org/fhir/definition-resource-types defines the following codes:

CodeDisplayDefinition
ActivityDefinition ActivityDefinitionThis resource allows for the definition of some activity to be performed, independent of a particular patient, practitioner, or other performance context.
EventDefinition EventDefinitionThe EventDefinition resource provides a reusable description of when a particular event can occur.
Measure MeasureThe Measure resource provides the definition of a quality measure.
OperationDefinition OperationDefinitionA formal computable definition of an operation (on the RESTful interface) or a named query (using the search interaction).
PlanDefinition PlanDefinitionThis resource allows for the definition of various types of plans as a sharable, consumable, and executable artifact. The resource is general enough to support the description of a broad range of clinical artifacts such as clinical decision support rules, order sets and protocols.
Questionnaire QuestionnaireA structured set of questions intended to guide the collection of answers from end-users. Questionnaires provide detailed control over order, presentation, phraseology and grouping to allow coherent, consistent data collection.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LevelA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. See Code System for further information.
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
