ICF Workshop in Ukraine
Training trainers to train the ICF to others does not have to be a tongue-twister.
From 10-19 December 2018 the ICF Research Branch conducted 3 back-to-back ICF train-the-trainers workshop as well as a mini-workshop for policy-making stakeholders in Kyiv, Ukraine. Seventy-seven persons from diverse backgrounds (rehabilitation doctors, physical therapists, an occupational therapist, educators, WHO staff, MoH Ukraine staff, and representatives of the Ukrainian Association of Persons with Disabilities "Group for Active Rehabilitation" (www.gar.org.ua) participated in 3 workshops. Approx. 10 policy-making stakeholders from diverse government ministries participated in the mini-ICF workshop
All three workshops and the mini-workshop were organized by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health and Health Right International (http://www.healthright.org.ua/en/), and supported by the Swiss Cooperation (SDC/DEZA) Office in Ukraine. Educating health and health-related professionals in the ICF is part of the Ukrainian government's efforts to develop an evidence-informed rehabilitation system and reform the disability evaluation and determination system.
