This value set contains 6 concepts.

  certain iconhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/adverse-event-causality-assessCertain

i) Event or laboratory test abnormality, with plausible time relationship to drug intake; ii) Cannot be explained by disease or other drugs; iii) Response to withdrawal plausible (pharmacologically, pathologically); iv) Event definitive pharmacologically or phenomenologically (i.e. an objective and specific medical disorder or a recognized pharmacological phenomenon); or v) Re-challenge satisfactory, if necessary.

  probably-likely iconhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/adverse-event-causality-assessProbably/Likely

i) Event or laboratory test abnormality, with reasonable time relationship to drug intake; ii) Unlikely to be attributed to disease or other drugs; iii) Response to withdrawal clinically reasonable; or iv) Re-challenge not required.

  possible iconhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/adverse-event-causality-assessPossible

i) Event or laboratory test abnormality, with reasonable time relationship to drug intake; ii) Could also be explained by disease or other drugs; or iii) Information on drug withdrawal may be lacking or unclear.

  unlikely iconhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/adverse-event-causality-assessUnlikely

i) Event or laboratory test abnormality, with a time to drug intake that makes a relationship improbable (but not impossible); or ii) Disease or other drugs provide plausible explanations.

  conditional-classified iconhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/adverse-event-causality-assessConditional/Classified

i) Event or laboratory test abnormality; ii) More data for proper assessment needed; or iii) Additional data under examination.

  unassessable-unclassifiable iconhttp://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/adverse-event-causality-assessUnassessable/Unclassifiable

i) Report suggesting an adverse reaction; ii) Cannot be judged because information is insufficient or contradictory; or iii) Data cannot be supplemented or verified.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - 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
