    • getTextElement

      public ca.uhn.fhir.model.primitive.StringDt getTextElement()
      Gets the value(s) for text (). creating it if it does not exist. Will not return null.

      Definition: Free text dosage instructions can be used for cases where the instructions are too complex to code. The content of this attribute does not include the name or description of the medication. When coded instructions are present, the free text instructions may still be present for display to humans taking or administering the medication. It is expected that the text instructions will always be populated. If the dosage.timing attribute is also populated, then the dosage.text should reflect the same information as the timing.
