Abstract

The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) has been promoted as a universal framework for allied health professionals (World Health Organization 2001). This article explores the links between the ICF (as a 'unifying language') and clinical reasoning (as a 'language of practice'), and proposes a linking framework to stimulate discussion around a model that could both guide and teach therapy based decision-making processes. The inclusion of the ICF into practice, via clinical reasoning, will encourage a broad and consistent approach to health care within the occupational therapy profession.
