This case-sensitive code system http://hl7.org/fhir/research-study-objective-type defines the following codes:

primary PrimaryThe main question to be answered, and the one that drives any statistical planning for the study—e.g., calculation of the sample size to provide the appropriate power for statistical testing.btn btn
secondary SecondaryQuestion to be answered in the study that is of lesser importance than the primary objective.btn btn
exploratory ExploratoryExploratory questions to be answered in the study.btn btn

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
