The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF
) provides a useful framework for the comprehensive description of the patients' functional health. The aim of this study was to identify the ICF
categories that represent the patients' problems treated by manual medicine practitioners in order to facilitate its application in manual medicine. This selection of ICF
categories could be used for assessment, treatment documentation and quality management in manual medicine practice.
Swiss manual medicine experts were asked about the patients' problems commonly treated by manual medicine practitioners in a three-round survey using the Delphi technique. Responses were linked to the ICF
Forty-eight manual medicine experts gave a total of 808 responses that were linked to 225 different ICF
categories; 106 ICF
categories which reached an agreement of at least 50% among the participants in the final Delphi-round were included in the set of ICF
Intervention Categories for Manual Medicine; 42 (40%) of the categories are assigned to the ICF
component body functions, 36 (34%) represent the ICF
component body structures and 28 (26%) the ICF
component activities and participation.
A first proposal of ICF
Intervention Categories for Manual Medicine was defined and needs to be validated in further studies.
