STU3 Limitation - Defining a maximum dose per course

A maximum dose for three scenarios is supported within the STU3 Dosage structure;

  • maxDosePerPeriod - define a maximum dose over a given period of time
  • maxDosePerAdministration - defines a maximum dose per administration
  • maxDosePerLifetime - defines the maximum dose during the lifetime of the patient

Not currently supported is how to define a maximum dose per course.

With the current STU3 Dosage structure, a maximum dose per course would have to be conveyed in free-text using the Dosage.additionalInstruction.
