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.

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.

CIF ou CIAP: o que falta classificar na atenção básica?

The International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC) has often been confused with the International
Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) because it is a tool that indicates problems
related to health, but which are not diseases. Although its importance be recognized in primary
care, the ICPC points, for example, the reasons for contact with health services, clinical information
and some interventions. In none of these respects, the ICPC addresses the issue of functioning and
disability, either, the relationship of environmental factors on human performance.

The use of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health in health surveys: a reflexion on its limits and possibilities

The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF)1 is a
useful tool to know the conditions of the functionality of people, associated or not
to any disease, as well as to identify the environmental and personal factors which
favor their activities and, consequently, their quality of life. Among the various
uses of ICF is its use in populational surveys on health and disability.

Personbezogene Faktoren – eine leeres Blatt oder “Blackbox”?

Der Spannungsbogen zwischen den Bestrebungen einer individualisierten, bedürfnisorientierten Gesundheitsförderung und der Erfassung möglichst detaillierter Patientendaten zur Verbesserung der Gesundheitsplanung wird aufgezeigt und diskutiert. Unter dem Aspekt der ursprünglichen Überlegungen bei der Entwicklung der ICF mit der Aufnahme des Bereichs Personbezogene Faktoren wird auf die aktuelle Diskussion um die Ausgestaltung und Entwicklung von Items in diesem Bereich eingegangen.

O uso da Classificação Internacional de Funcionalidade, Incapacidade e Saúde em inquéritos de saúde: uma reflexão sobre limites e possibilidades

The health surveys, such as the Household Health Survey of São Paulo (Inquérito Domiciliar de Saúde de São Paulo– ISA-Capital), in general, were designed to identify the existing relationships between social conditions and health. A unique feature of the surveys is the possibility of assessing people’s health conditions, including those which are not treated in health services and, therefore, are out of the usual statistics of the system

The ICF for Parents (P-ICF)

Rehabilitation of a child with Cerebral Palsy (CP) is challenging, but parents want to do the best for their child. To help parents in their efforts, we have created five videos about using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework for rehabilitation in CP. The ICF framework was created by the World Health Organisation. It helps in understanding and managing children’s (in fact everyone’s) health effectively. We hope that you find these videos valuable. We need your help to make these videos useful and available for parents and families of children
