All SNOMED CT-AU and AMT resources, including implementation collateral, are now available to download from the document library on the National Clinical Terminology Service website.

This toolkit provides a short introduction or ‘quick start’ reference for developers wishing to work with SNOMED CT-AU Reference Sets (Refsets). It includes sample applications built on Oracle’s Java platform and built on the Microsoft .NET Framework that demonstrate importing and using reference sets.

This document focuses on the naming conventions and rules associated with all description types for concepts in the AMT v3 model. It provides a practical understanding of the rules applied in the creation of the AMT v3 descriptions.

The AMT model has undergone modification in response to feedback from and consultation with software vendors, jurisdictions, clinicians currently working on implementing prescribing and dispensing software, the Pharmaceutical Benefits Division and the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
