Introduction

The World Health Organization (WHO) has systematically developed a model of disability that considers the ongoing interaction between an individual's health and contextual factors. This model acknowledges that disability is a universal human experience, is aetiologically neutral, and lies on a continuum from no disability to complete disability. This course provides an introduction to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) and reviews the progress made in conceptualising and measuring disability.

Aims

This course aims to introduce the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) and its role in rehabilitation.

This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at rehabilitation professionals, students and assistants including but not limited to Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Rehabilitation Doctors, Rehabilitation Nurses, Prosthetists, Orthotists, Psychologists, Audiologists, Dietetics, Social Workers.

This course is about to wake me up from the comforting dream of accepting how my country considers the healthcare condition of life. It is not only increasing my knowledge and skills, but I got a feeling of a revolution in how things happen when it comes to the health condition of life that is entirely abnormal. Whether we like it or not, we fully meet all the requirements to be a potential candidate to be disabled one day! Therefore we all should be concerned with the way disability is perceived.
