    The aim

    This Second International Symposium: ICF Education builds on the first held in Finland in 2015. The aim is to bring together people from around the world who are using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in clinical practice and teaching such as in interprofessional education, research or product development.

    Collaboration and participation from all stakeholders is important. All participants are expected to share their experiences (whether they present and abstract or not) and learn from each other. This will not be a symposium where you can just sit back and listen. Participation is required!

    • Venue: New Somerset Hospital, Bay Court, Portswood Road, Green Point, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa (Map)
