FUNCIONALIDADE DE PACIENTES COM FIBROMIALGIA NA PERSPECTIVA DA CIF

A Fibromialgia é uma síndrome caracterizada principalmente pela presença de dor musculoesquelética difusa e crônica, por sítios anatômicos específicos dolorosos à palpação, conhecidos como “tender points” e, por sintomas como a fadiga, distúrbios do sono, e distúrbios cognitivos comportamentais. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a funcionalidade de pacientes com fibromialgia através do instrumento Medida de Independência Funcional (MIF), e após todas as questões da MIF foram codificadas segundo a Classificação Internacional de Funcionalidade, Incapacidade e Saúde.

AVALIAÇÃO DO SONO EM FIBROMIÁLGICOS DE ACORDO COM A CIF

A Fibromialgia é uma condição caracterizada pela presença de dor crônica e generalizada vinculada a outros sintomas como, ansiedade, fadiga, depressão, distúrbios do sono e alterações neuropsicoemocionais. Sintomatologia esta que afeta diretamente a funcionalidade. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar e comparar a qualidade do sono de portadores de FM e de controles saudáveis por meio do Índice de Qualidade do Sono de Pittsburgh e, em seguida codificar a informação produzida por meio da Classificação Internacional de Funcionalidade, Incapacidade e Saúde tornando-a padronizada e universal.

DMCN Postcast: International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health Core Sets for children and youth with cerebral palsy: a consensus meeting

Discussion of the paper: ‘International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health Core Sets for children and youth with cerebral palsy: a consensus meeting ‘.

The contributors in this podcast are as follows: Dr. Veronica Schiariti (Developmental Pediatrician, Child and Family Research Institute, Department of Pediatrics, University of British Columbia, Canada) and Dr. Sigrid Ostensjo (Physiotherapist, Oslo University College, Oslo, Norway).

juntos Básicos de la CIF para niños y jóvenes con Parálisis Cerebral

Congreso Oritel – Asuncion Paraguay – 2015
Symposium presentation – This power point presentation includes a brief introduction to the ICF model. The main focus of this presentation was to describe the development of the ICF Core Sets for children and youth with CP and the ongoing projects – including KT, cultural validation, implementation , etc

ICF educational e-Tool

This educational website illustrates how to apply the ICF Core Sets for children and youth with Cerebral Palsy (CP) in day-to-day practice. A highlight of this ICF e-tool is the “case studies” which use interactive and practical examples covering each of the five ICF Core Sets for CP.
In addition, this educational material includes a brief introduction to the ICF, why it is important in Pediatrics, and a summary of the ICF Core Sets developmental methodology with links to all the relevant papers published today. Finally, users can download the ICF Core Sets in seven different languages.

Article

Quality of life (QOL) is one of the leading outcomes in burn care research. This study classifies subscales of common QOL measures within the International Classification of Functioning disability and health (ICF) framework to determine to which extent the measures are complementary or overlapping and to investigate whether the instruments are able to describe the full spectrum of patients’ functioning.

A literature search was performed to determine the most frequently used questionnaires in burn research. The subscales of the three mostly used questionnaires were classified within the ICF.

A Biopsychosocial Evaluation Method and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF)

This study evaluated the significant contents and concepts of the Biopsychosocial Assessment Method (MAB) as they relate to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) and the connection between the Geriatric Core Set (GCS) and the different issues of the MAB. We linked the 56 items of the MAB to ICF and GCS categories according to published rules.
The results of this study show that—much like the ICF—the MAB is a tool based on the biopsychosocial model, allowing for a comprehensive and integrated assessment of the different components of functioning.

Funcionalidade e incapacidade: aspectos conceptuais, estruturais e de aplicação da Classificação Internacional de Funcionalidade, Incapacidade e Saúde (CIF)

The aim of this article is to present the International Classification of Functioning,
Disability and Health (ICF), which comprises the “family” of classifications of the World
Health Organization (WHO).
This classification offers a unified and standardized language, as well as a conceptual
framework for describing the health and the health related states, setting out a valuable
instrument of practical use in public health.
In this paper we analyze the conceptual framework and the structure of the ICF, and we
also describe the action lines for its dissemination and implementation.

Personal Factors and Participation how should professionals proceed?

The ICF is an excellent tool to improve the understanding of health and disability. It can be used to develop functional profiles containing more meaningful information as it is possible to obtain from a list of diagnoses. Professionals need to be aware and get to know the personal factors of their patients to better understand their values, desires and goals. This is considered evidence-based practice.
Personal factors cannot be defined and coded for statistical purposes as the necessary categories do not correspond to the individual variations of how people define themselves.
