Definition from Wikipedia:
世界保健機関が2001年5月22日の世界保健総会において、国際障害分類(1980年採択、英語: International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and Handicaps; ICIDH)の改訂版として採択、加盟国に勧告している、健康状態、心身機能、障害の状態を相互影響関係および独立項目として分類し、当事者の視点による生活の包括的・中立的記述をねらいにする医療基準。

Example sentence(s):
  • 国際生活機能分類(以下「ICF」という。)とは,人間のあらゆる健康状態に関係した生活機能状態から,その人をとりまく社会制度や社会資源までをアルファベットと数字を組み合わせた方式で分類し,記述・表現をしようとするものである。 - WHO、ICF 日本語版(中央法規)  
  • ICF(国際生活機能分類 以下ICF)は、障害の持つ持たざるに関わらず、すべての人を対象とした生活機能、生きることの全体を現すものであることは、すでにこれまでの先行して研究されている。またその実際の使い方は、医療、介護(ケアマネジメント)の中においてもすでに実践されている。時間的、空間的な差を超えた普遍的なものとして、ICFは大規模複合災害時の包括的支援のあり方を検討する上でもきわめて重要な視点であり、本研究事業の基幹をなす概念である。 - 仙台往診クリニック
