Description/Abstract

The new International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) created by the World Health Organization provides both a framework and a classification that comprehensively represents the experience of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and also provides a universal language understood by health professionals, researchers, policy makers, patients, and patient organizations alike. To aid the implementation of the ICF in rheumatology and in medicine in general, practical tools such as the ICF Core Sets for RA have been developed using a rigorous scientific approach.
