A European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine Academic Debate: Describing Experienced Health on the Basis of the WHO's Model of Functioning (ICF) or on the Theory of Social Productivity?

J Rehabil Med 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Development and Regeneration / Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, KU Leuven University of leuven - University Hospitals Leuven, BE-3000 Leuven, Belgium.

The first Academic Debate was held within the European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine (EARM) in Budapest in 2016. The question debated was: is it possible to provide a theory neutral framework to describe the lived experience of health or is there an appropriate theory to understand what constitute the most relevant factors in health (and well-being). First the link between the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and rehabilitation as a key health strategy was explained. Read More
