Through an established consensus and decision-making process, 20 experts from all 6 WHO regions and various disciplines (psychiatry, (neuro)psychology, social work, occupational therapy, vocational rehabilitation, nursing) finalized the first version of the ICF Core Sets for schizophrenia.
The Comprehensive ICF Core Set contains 97 categories and Brief 25 categories – all at the 2nd level. The participants decided to stay on the 2nd level rather than including more specific categories on the 3rd and 4th level.
Go to the dowload section to access the individual ICF Core Sets. For detailed information on the project to develop the ICF Core Sets for schizophrenia, go to the corresponding article in the ICF Core Sets section.
