Upcoming ICF symposium

Click here to register for the 7th International Symposium: ICF Education (virtual) | Saturday & Sunday 23 & 24 October 2021 @11:00 – 21:00h UTC

During the 7th International Symposium: ICF Education we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. We will look back at the progress made over the past 20 years to implement ICF and look forward to where ICF might be 10 years from now.

The aim is to virtually bring together people from around the world who are teaching about or using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in health statistics and administration, clinical practice and education such as in interprofessional education, research and product development.

Previous symposia demonstrated the successful biopsychosocial application of ICF in education, clinical practice and research. People with an interest in ICF from around the world are once again invited to share their experiences on this global platform and to learn from each other.

Collaboration and participation from all stakeholders are required. All participants are expected to share their experiences (whether they present an abstract or not) and learn from each other.! Accepted presentations will be posted on the www.ICFEducation.org website.

Date & time: Saturday & Sunday 23 & 24 October 2021 @11:00 - 21:00 GMT               

Cost: BRL 240 (±USD 50)
