"The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is used for morbidity and mortality statistics. However, the introduction of a code for chronic pain with somatic and psychological factors (F45.41) in Germany 2009 made it the major indication for multimodal pain treatment and influenced health care funding since 2013. IASP and WHO have proposed chronic pain diagnoses for ICD-11 that hopefully will have a similar effect worldwide."
