The DSM-5 and ICD-10 Transition: Mastering the Changes and Navigating the DSM/ICD Interface

Presented By: Jerome Wakefield, PhD, DSW

Registration Opens: 8:00am
Program: 9:00 - 4:00pm with 1 hour break for lunch
Lunch included

Program Description:
Major changes are coming to psychiatric diagnosis. The diagnostic and coding system used by clinicians for reimbursement and record keeping is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime double transformation. The DSM-5, published in May 2013, challenges the clinician with controversial changes in categories, diagnostic criteria, and overall structure, and is gradually being adopted as the official standard by insurers and medical institutions. Additionally, on October 1, 2014 the United States medical system will adopt the tenth revision of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10), replacing the current CD-9 coding system. The ICD is used throughout the world and is the official U.S. diagnostic coding system by both international treaty and U.S, law; "DSM codes” are in fact ICD codes.

This unique workshop will critically review both the DSM-5 and ICD-10 systems and how they interface in clinical diagnosis and coding. We will explore the conceptual and pragmatic differences and overlaps between the two systems’ approaches, and the efforts to bring them into greater conformity. We will also attend to how the system of DSM-5 categories and diagnostic criteria is "cross-walked” to ICD-10 codes in ways that may or may not correspond precisely to the intent of the DSM-5 labels. Globalization trends in clinical training, research, communication, and clinical practice make the ICD diagnostic model an important context for the DSM, and in addition unique ICD features to be highlighted in the workshop point the way to the likely future of DSM diagnosis.
