Title in English: A dynamic concept of health and its relation with the ICF
Abstract / summary in English:
Recently the new, dynamic concept of health that was introduced in BMJ in 2011 was operationalized in six dimensions and 32 aspects of health. The linking rules of Cieza et al. were used to link these aspects to the ICF. Of the 46 meaningful concepts found, 42 (91,3%) could be coded as body function, activity / participation, environmental factor or personal factor. The high percentage of concepts that could be coded as personal factor, emphasizes the importance of these factors in the experience of health and for their inclusion in future versions of the ICF.
