We are pleased to announce the launch of the field testing of the ICF e-learning Tool!
The ICF e-learning Tool is an interactive web-based tool to introduce the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to a broad audience. It was developed by members of two committees of the World Health Organization Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC) – the Education and Implementation Committee (EIC) and the Functioning and Disability Reference Group (FDRG). The tool aims to give an overview of the need for the ICF, its aims, the conceptualization and uses of the ICF.
We are pleased to invite you to be part of the international field testing of the ICF e-learning Tool. The aim of this field testing is to gather information from potential users around the world about the tool’s usability and user-friendliness. This information will help us to optimize the ICF e-learning Tool according to the needs of users.
The field testing will start 24 September 2017 and end 31 October 2017. You can access the ICF e-learning Tool using the following link: https://icf-elearning.com/. After completing the ICF e-learning Tool, please provide feedback using the evaluation form provided.
We would like to thank you in advance for contributing to the field testing of the ICF e-learning Tool!
