Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


The purpose of this template is to link to resources and data off Wikipedia, which are common to medical content; but not relevant to the average reader. It should be placed within the "External links" section, and after the list of external links.

Some parameter's labels are automatically populated from Wikidata; but can be overridden locally.

Please note: because the external link used by each resource template will act as its own reference, there is no requirement for further verifiability within this template. (Any reference provided will also fail to populate the article Reference list and create a (second) separate list at the very bottom of the article.)

As a rule of thumb:

  1. Insert the empty version
  2. Click "Show preview" to see which sources are automatically pulled from Wikidata
  3. (Optional) If you know more codes, IDs, etc; add them in the template using their named parameter. Alternatively, consider adding them to the article's "Wikidata item", so that all versions of Wikipedia will automatically benefit.


Adding an empty version of the template relies wholly on Wikidata: {{Medical resources}}

Selective suppression

You can suppress parameters with blank parameters or local knowledge. This method is also reliant wholly on Wikidata, except the suppressed or overwritten parameters:

  • Blank parameter: {{Medical resources |PatientUK= |MeshID= |NCI=}}
  • Local knowledge override: {{Medical resources |MeshID=D000001}}
  • Combination it is possible to combine these to suppress some and locally override others: {{Medical resources |PatientUK= |MeshID=D000001 |NCI=}}


The full list of parameters is as follows (may not be up-to-date) : {{{Medical resources | ICD10=Xxx.x |ICD10CM=Xxx.xxxx |ICD9=xxx |ICDO=Mxxxx/x |OMIM=x.xx |DiseasesDB=x.xx |MedlinePlus=x.xx |eMedicineSubj=x.xx |MedicineTopic=x.xx |MeshID=D000001 |GeneReviewsNBK=x.xx |GeneReviewsName=x.xx |NORD=x.xx |GARDNum=x.xx |GARDName=x.xx |Orphanet=x.xx |AO=x.xx |RP=x.xx |WO=x.xx |OrthoInfo=x.xx |NCI=x.xx |Scholia=x.xx |SNOMED CT=xxx}}

Adding new parameters

(This in information is for template editors)

When adding new parameters that are linked to Wikidata there are a couple of pre-defined parameter sets for the {{wdib}} wrapper, which group commonly defined parameters.

Parameter set 1, |ps=1, has the following presets

       rank = "best"
       fetchwikidata = "ALL"
       onlysourced = "no"
       noicon = "true"

Parameter set 2, |ps=2, has the following presets

       rank = "best"
       fetchwikidata = "ALL"
       onlysourced = "no"
       noicon = "true"
       linked = "no"
       plaindate = "true"
