With a group of global nodes pertaining to a particular area - for example disease in a certain system, nodes are arranged alphabetically.

Underneath a global node, the relevant local nodes are listed in the following order, if they exist:

  • epidemiology, incidence
  • pathology
  • types
  • aetiology
  • risk factors
  • clinical features
  • investigations or diagnosis
  • differential diagnosis
  • management or treatment
  • complications
  • prognosis In nearly all cases the list of local nodes should not exceed 10 items.

Underneath a local node the added nodes should appear in the same order as they appear in the information file describing them. This should itself be some logical order - for example frequency of occurrence or anatomically from top to bottom.
