Erasmus University Medical Center and Rijndam Rehabilitation in the Netherlands, with the support of the ICF Research Branch, is in the process of developing an ICF Core Set for adults with cerebral palsy (CP). One of four preparatory studies involves conducting a web-based international expert survey.
If you are have 2 years of experience working with adults with CP in a clinical setting, disability care or research and s ufficient English language skills to complete a survey, the project team would be delighted to hear from you. Your expertise is valuable and would be a great contribution to the study's aim of identifying the most relevant areas of functioning and problems experienced by adults with CP – from the experts’ perspective. For more information and contact details for the project team, please see the flyer by clicking onto the PDF symbol.
You are also welcome to forward the flyer to other experts.
The deadline for indicating interest in participating in the expert survey is 30 September 2018.
Many thanks from the Project Team!
Reflective of our time, the ICF Research Branch Newsletter - referred to from now on as the Branch Newsletter - will be published as an online newsletter rather than paper-based or as a PDF. The Branch Newsletter can be read directly on the ICF Research Branch website www.icf-research-branch.org, and individual articles can be printed. An email notification that a new edition of the Branch Newsletter is available will be sent to those who have subscribed to the Branch Newsletter by completing the form here.
Thanks to the interesting and thought-provoking talks and poster presentations as well as the active participation from the attendees both onsite and online, the 3rd International Symposium: ICF Education was a great success!
In line with the symposium's mission to bring together people from around the world who are using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in clinical practice, research and teaching, 96 persons from all 6 WHO world regions registered for the conference and 43 posters addressing diverse ICF topics were displayed and discussed. The symposium concluded a week of independent but interconnected ICF meetings that commenced with the mid-year meetings of the WHO Family International Classifications working groups – the Functioning and Disability Reference Group and the Education and Implementation Committee – and continued with the German National ICF Users Conference. The German National ICF Users Conference and the 3rd International Symposium: ICF Education also welcomed participants at a joint session encompassing 3 talks that addressed the use of ICF in Germany. See programme below.
The ICF Research Branch (symposium organising committee) would like to thank the Medical School Hamburg (MSH) for hosting and supporting the organisation of the 3rd International Symposium: ICF Education and ensuring that it was a success.
The next available German-language ICF workshop will take place on Thursday/Friday, 17-18 September 2018 at the Research Unit for Biopsychosocial Health, Chair for Public Health and Health Services Research at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich, Germany.
The one and a half day training workshop will cover a wide range of topics and comprises a basic module as well as specific modules.
Day 1: Basic module – 8 trainings sessions
Day 2: Advanced modules (optional) – 4 training sessions
