Systems of care: Transition form the bio-psycho-social perspective of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health

2017-10-12 10:10:30 | Olaf Kraus de Camargo
The transition process of vulnerable adolescents, including those with complex health conditions, occurs in all domains of their life. Systems of care are usually designed but also restricted within certain aspects of life, as addressed by health, education and social welfare. The need for a co-ordinated approach to support the transition process has been voiced before, but usually publications focus on one system of care, usually the healthcare system or the education system. The article analyses different approaches using the ICF as a framework.

Personal Factors and Participation how should professionals proceed?

2017-10-12 10:10:30 | Olaf Kraus de Camargo
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.
