The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) system addresses human functioning, providing a standard language and framework that describes how people with a health condition function in their daily lives, rather than focusing on a labeled diagnosis or the presence or absence of disease. The ICF model considers the dynamics between a person’s health condition and environmental and personal factors. This course will provide you with an overview of the language of the ICF and help you to become familiar with the conceptual framework, terminology, and potential applications for physical therapist practice. Please note: the CEU version of this course offers an additional topic on coding that is not available in this free version of the course.
