Reviews

"[F]unctional status may be a better indicator of health care needs and outcomes than is diagnosis alone. The World Health Organization's (WHO) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), developed to capture the full range of human functioning, has gained wide acceptance among international rehabilitation and health researchers and professionals as a framework that can be used to support a systematic approach for understanding chronic illness and disability across cultures - "[T]his manual is reader friendly and cohesive, and offers tangible steps and resources (including printable documentation forms on CD-ROM) to assist clinicians in applying the ICF framework to rehabilitation assessment and planning across settings and health conditions." Dr. Fong Chan, PhD, and Dr. Nicole Ditchman in PsycCRITIQUES, vol. 58, 2013 "By using this collection of clear checklists, definitions, and forms, clinicians will quickly and easily be able to assess clients with a range of typical health conditions at different stages and in a variety of health care contexts. [...] This manual is inherently multi-professional and will be of benefit not only for practitioners working in various health care contexts but also for students and teachers." in Anticancer Research, Vol. 32, 2012 "The original International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) is too complex and exhaustive for use in daily practice, so WHO developed a series of ICF Core Sets, [...] which can serve as minimal standards for assessment of function and disability across a variety of healthcare settings, including acute, postacute, and long-term care. The use of common assessment items at each stage allows clinicians to monitor an individual patient's progress over time and provides a common language of assessment that can be used by all members of an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team. [...] This [manual] will be a valuable resource to a variety of clinicians and healthcare professionals, particularly those involved in rehabilitation medicine. [...] The manual is easy to understand and very practical. It is suitable for practitioners and students in a variety of medical specialties, but it is particularly relevant to the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation." Linda L. Lovell, BS, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, in Doody's Notes, January 2013
