Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the extension.

Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

The default/suggested phrasing to use when prompting a human to capture the data element in question form (e.g. In a survey).

Cardinality0..* This element is affected by the following invariants: ele-1
Comments

Question and label serve similar purposes in they both can be used to prompt for capturing a data element. Whether the question form or label form should be used will depend on the type of instrument being used to capture the information. The ordering is in order of preference. I.e. Most preferred question form is listed first. Note that this is for alternate phrasings of the question. Language translations are handled using the ISO 21090 string translation extensions.
