International Classification of Primary Care, Version 2-Plus Source Information
The Family Medicine Research Centre (FMRC), at the University of Sydney, maintains the Australian Modification of the International Classification of Primary Care, Second Edition (ICPC-2).
This is the Australian Modification of ICPC-2, known as ICPC-2 Plus.
ICPC-2 Plus is primarily used in Australia and provides greater specificity for data input than ICPC-2.
For more information about ICPC in the Metathesaurus, see the ICPC source synopsis. The Metathesaurus also includes ICPC-2-E, which is the electronic version of the revised chapters 10 and 11 of ICPC-2.
ICPC-2 Plus is updated about three times a year.

ICPC-2 Plus was last updated in the Metathesaurus in 2006.
