Family Member Relationship


Identifier:18.04
Definition:Relationship of Family Member to Patient or other Family Member.
Constraints:Record information on relatives including 1st and 2nd degree, such as: Mother Siblings Children Aunts/uncles Cousins Grandchildren Nieces/Nephews.

This data element also allows the recording of the natural father and mother, and the adoptive status. Consanguinity can be determined by including relationships between consanguineous individuals.

Note: In order to record information for 3rd degree relatives and beyond, implementations can provide recursive entries. For example, the first entry could state a "grandmother", then the next entry could state the "grandmother's mother" which would be a 3rd degree relative. This enables any degree on relatives.
