LIFE Forum Rehabilitation 2024 - ICF Course (in German)
The LIFE Forum is a vibrant platform that converges multidisciplinary expertise to illuminate the pathway toward optimal functioning, health and well-being.
On Wednesday, 15 February 2024, 9:00-17:30, a German-language Basic ICF Course will take place in-person at the University of Lucerne, Switzerland. This whole-day ICF course is a bit different from the two half-day ICF workshop the ICF Research Branch usually holds as it will focus on the clinical application of the ICF in rehabilitation.
