Abstract [en]

Objective: To explore how content analysis can be used together with linking rules to link texts on assessment and intervention to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health – version for children and youth (ICF-CY).

Methods: Individual habilitation plans containing texts on assessment and intervention for children with disabilities and their families were linked to the ICF-CY using content analysis. Texts were first divided into meaning units in order to extract meaningful concepts. Meaningful concepts that were difficult to link to ICF-CY codes were grouped, and coding schemes with critical attributes were developed. Meaningful concepts that could not be linked to the ICF-CY were assigned to the categories “not-definable” and “not-covered”, using coding schemes with mutually exclusive categories.

Results: The size of the meaning units selected resulted in different numbers and contents of meaningful concepts. Coding schemes with critical attributes of ICF-CY codes facilitated the linking of meaningful concepts to the most appropriate ICF-CY codes. Coding schemes with mutually exclusive categories facilitated the classification of meaningful concepts that could or could not be linked to the ICF-CY.

Conclusion: Content analysis techniques can be applied together with linking rules in order to link texts on assessment and intervention to the ICF-CY.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the thesis, with four empirical studies, was to explore the applicability of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, version for children and youth (ICF-CY) to describe functioning and environment of children with disabilities. The components and categories in the ICF-CY were explored by studying items in ICF-CY based questionnaires in studies I and II and by linking texts of individual habilitation plans to the ICF-CY in studies III and IV. Professionals’ perceptions of the applicability of the ICF-CY and the ICFCY questionnaire were investigated in study II. In study IV changes in focus on ICF-CY components in documentation of individual habilitation plans were explored after in-service training in the ICF-CY. Studies I and II found variations in ratings of questionnaire items based on the performance qualifier in component Activities and participation. The variations may be explained by the context in which ratings were made and by expectations and perceptions of those who made ratings. The results indicated challenges in constructing universal measures of the performance qualifier. The studies also indicated limitations in the use of items based on Environmental factors, when used separately from items in Activities and participation. Studies II and III found that the categories in the components Body functions and Activities and participation were interrelated. Study III indicated challenges in describing family situation and children’s psychosocial environment in the Environmental factors. In study II the professionals described advantages and challenges in the use of the ICFCY and suggested necessary changes to the ICF-CY questionnaire. Study IV found that the professionals in child and youth habilitation described children’s functioning more precisely and in more detail after in-service training. Overall, the results suggest both advantages and challenges of the ICFCY when used to describe functioning and environment of children with disabilities. The results call for a need of a combined use of the categories from all the ICF-CY the components.
