- Theoretical Foundations for the Measurement of Environmental Factors and Their Impact on Participation Among People With DisabilitiesArchives of Physical Medicine and RehabilitationVol. 96Issue 4
- PreviewThe ascendance of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Heath (ICF) as the global standard for describing and characterizing aspects of disability has refocused attention on the role that environmental factors (EFs) have on the health and participation of people with disabilities, both as individuals and as a group. There has been a rise in the development of instruments designed to measure EFs alone and in relation to participation. Some instrument developers have used the ICF as a theoretical base for instrument development and to substantiate content validity claims.
