Is CDBC used outside of BC or is there another term for complex developmental and behavioural conditions?

Someone I know is a child who has had his collection of health issues classified as complex developmental & behavioural conditions. This is, from what I can tell, not a DSM classification, but a way of describing a complex set of medical problems. But when I search for this, I only have results for British Columbia (where we all live) come up. Is there another way of describing this? Their child's medical team said that we are at the stage of understanding this that perhaps we were at with autism a decade or two ago.
What is this called in other parts of the world or even Canada? BC seem to have a medical centre at BC Children's Hospital / Sunny Hill devoted to CDBC. But surely this is not the only place in the world....right?
