CONCEPTUAL APPLICATION OF INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF FUNCTIONING, DISABILITY AND HEALTH (ICF) MODEL TO ADDRESS STROKE OUTCOME MEASURES

Soumya S

Abstract


This paper is a discussion of the use of the International Classi􀃶cation of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF)
Model to guide the investigation of any intervention in improving outcome of stroke. The purpose of this article is to
suggest ICF model in delivering care. In applying this model to stroke patients, this model is precise. Although in this model the separation of
Activity and Participation domains is not always clear, especially where activities can be undertaken alone; this is also taken as evidence of
societal participation. Those in the 􀃶eld of rehabilitation nursing should adapt this model to practice.
