For a basic search:

Type the word or phrase you’d like to search for into the search box on the home page

  • If there is at least one class in the ontology that relates to that term, you’ll see a list of classes under the search box
  • If you want to view the single class that most closely matches your search, click on its name in the list
  • If you want to view all the classes that may relate to your search terms, select “view all search results”

If you want to explore classes in the ontology:

  • From any page, click on the “Explore” option (top right corner of the page)
  • You will see all the terms in the ontology, listed in alphabetical order
  • [Feature coming soon] you will be able to filter the list of classes to find those that are part of a particular lower level ontology, such as setting or mode of delivery.
  • You can use the search box to generate a list of classes related to your search term
  • In the list of classes below the search box, you will see each class’s label and its “URI” [unique resource identifier]
  • Clicking on the blue “V” shape gives you brief information about a class’s definition and parent class
    • If you then click the blue “View label data” box, you will be able to see all the information about a class
