Abstract:


Background:

The Comprehensive ICF Core Set for Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) is a list of essential categories on functioning based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), which describes a standard for interdisciplinary assessment, documentation, and communication in vocational rehabilitation (VR).

Objective:

To examine the content validity of the Comprehensive ICF Core Set for VR from the perspective of physical therapists (PTs).

Design:

A three-round e-mail survey has been performed using a Delphi method.

Methods:

We conveniently sampled international PTs working in VR with work experience of ? 2 years who were asked to identify aspects they consider as relevant when evaluating and/or treating clients in VR. Responses were linked to the ICF categories and compared with the Comprehensive ICF Core Set for VR.

Results:

Sixty-two PTs from all 6 WHO world-regions responded with 3,917 statements that were subsequently linked to 338 ICF categories. Fifteen (17 %) of the 90 categories in the Comprehensive ICF Core Set for VR have been confirmed by the PTs in our sample. We identified twenty-two additional ICF categories that were not included in the Comprehensive ICF Core Set for VR.

Limitations:

VR in physical therapy is not well defined in every country hence might have resulted in small sample size and the results cannot be generalized to all PTs practicing in VR.

Conclusion:

The content validity of the ICF Core Set for VR is insufficient from a sole PT perspective. The results of this study could be used to define a PT specific set of ICF categories to develop and guide PT clinical practice in VR.
