International Classification of adult underweight, overweight and obesity according to BMI

"Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify underweight, overweight and obesity in adults. It is defined as the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in metres (kg/m2). For example, an adult who weighs 70kg and whose height is 1.75m will have a BMI of 22.9.

African Traditional Medicine Ontology

"The ontology consists of concepts or terms (nodes) that are linked by three types of relationships (edges). That means the ontology appears as a direct acyclic graph. The parent and child terms are connected to each other by is_a and part_of relationships. The former is a relation in which the child term is a more restrictive concept than its parent (thus divination is_a traditional_practice). The latter is used to show the inclusion relationships between concepts, for example that a potion_type is part_of a potion."

Datenbank für wissenschaftliche Schriften in der Pflege Thesaurus

"Für den Bereich der Pflegewissenschaft liegt noch kein umfassender deutschsprachiger Thesaurus vor. Im englischsprachigen Bereich ist der für die Datenbank CINAHL genutzte Thesaurus der wohl am weitesten entwickelte. Eine Übertragung in die deutsche Sprache ist jedoch aufwändig aufgrund zu berücksichtigender kultureller und berufsbezogener Spezifika. In Deutschland nutzt die Datenbank CareLit einen speziellen Schlagwortkatalog, der allerdings eine geringe Systematik aufweist und wissenschaftliche Aspekte nur in geringem Maße berücksichtigt.

Thésaurus en Éducation pour la Santé

"Le thesaurus en éducation pour la santé a été élaboré à partir de la version 2 du thesaurus BDSP (Banque de données santé publique), utilisée à l’Institut national de prévention et d’éducation pour la santé et dans quelques comités d’éducation pour la santé. Ce thesaurus BDSP 2 comporte 5 200 descripteurs et présente de vastes possibilités d’utilisation dans des domaines comme l’épidémiologie, le soin ou encore les technologies de la santé. Cependant, il présente des lacunes notamment en éducation pour la santé et éducation du patient, en psychologie, en pédagogie et en sociologie.
