The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF
) is comprehensive but difficult to use in clinical practice. ICF
Core Sets are one method of increasing the use of the ICF
in clinical practice. To develop a condition-specific core set requires identification of the concepts measured in current clinical practice.
To identify and quantify concepts contained in functional measurements used in published clinical studies utilising the ICF
as a reference, for individuals with an amputation of the lower limb.
Systematic literature review.
The concepts of published clinical and outcome measures used in individuals with a lower limb amputation were extracted and linked to the categories of ICF
The 113 outcome measures identified in the literature search contained 2210 functional concepts. Of the identified concepts, nearly 90% could be linked to ICF
categories. The identified concepts linked to 44 categories in the domain of body functions and structures, 56 categories in the domain of activities and participation and 30 categories in the domain of environment.
Using the ICF
as a reference, we could identify and quantify the majority of concepts in the outcome measures used in published clinical studies. The ICF
categories identified will assist in the development of ICF
Core Sets for persons with an amputation.
is available in over 25 languages. Improving the usefulness of the classification for clinicians will assist in standardising clinical practice and in comparison of outcomes nationally and internationally. ICF
Core Sets are designed to use a manageable number of categories from the ICF
to allow application in day-to-day clinical practice.
