This Code system is used in the following value sets:

The type of relationship to the related artifact.

This code system defines the following codes:

documentation DocumentationAdditional documentation for the knowledge resource. This would include additional instructions on usage as well as additional information on clinical context or appropriateness.
justification JustificationA summary of the justification for the knowledge resource including supporting evidence, relevant guidelines, or other clinically important information. This information is intended to provide a way to make the justification for the knowledge resource available to the consumer of interventions or results produced by the knowledge resource.
citation CitationBibliographic citation for papers, references, or other relevant material for the knowledge resource. This is intended to allow for citation of related material, but that was not necessarily specifically prepared in connection with this knowledge resource.
predecessor PredecessorThe previous version of the knowledge resource.
successor SuccessorThe next version of the knowledge resource.
derived-from Derived FromThe knowledge resource is derived from the related artifact. This is intended to capture the relationship in which a particular knowledge resource is based on the content of another artifact, but is modified to capture either a different set of overall requirements, or a more specific set of requirements such as those involved in a particular institution or clinical setting.
depends-on Depends OnThe knowledge resource depends on the given related artifact.
composed-of Composed OfThe knowledge resource is composed of the given related artifact.

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
