Codebook for DICTUM made available on this website

Eirik H. Ofstad developed over the years 2010-2o15 the Decision Identification and Classification Taxonomy for Use in Medicine (DICTUM) in his doctoral work. This tool aims to identify all medical decisions that emerge as statements in physician-patient interactions. The taxonomy operates with two dimensions, the type of decision, of which there are ten kinds, and the temporal nature of decisions, of which there are three different ones, those made ahead of the interaction (preformed), those made in the interaction (present), and those that are conditional, that is, expressed as possible to make in the future depending on the course. You will find the DICTUM codebook on the resources page on this website.
