Research on ICF

There are numerous research projects related to the ICF classification - for example, the Core Set development for the practical application of the ICF, and more.


In the internet portal REHADAT-Research, projects relating to ICF are published in the field "Classification and Standards." Research projects in this field are concerned with the development and practical application of classification systems and standards for rehabiliation and participation. In addition to the ICF, performance classifications and guidelines are also included.
