Research partners met to work on FunctionMapper 2.0


The mICF research partners met in Hamburg (Germany) from 14-16 April 2018 to collaborate in populating the newly released FunctionMapper 2.0 with lay terms in English, German, Dutch, Korean and Portuguese. This content specification tool, developed by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), was populated with ICF terms associated with hip problems.

FunctionMapper converts a person’s natural language concepts and responses to items in assessment instruments and goals related to functioning and environmental factors in every language where mICF is to be deployed. FunctionMapper has the ability to support all languages. It provides user-friendly terms to mICF frontend applications.
