Vocational rehabilitation (VR
) programs aim to facilitate work participation. However, there is no universal framework to describe the functioning of individuals who participate in VR
The objective of this paper is to report on the Core Set for VR
based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF
) by the World Health Organization (WHO
A formal decision-making and consensus-based process was conducted based on the evidence from four preparatory studies. Twenty-three international experts chosen by WHO
Region and expertise in VR
attended the consensus conference.
categories were included in the comprehensive Core Set (activities and participation equals 40, environmental factors equals 33, body functions equals 17), while the brief Core Set included 13 second-level categories (activities and participation equals 6, environmental factors equals 4, body functions equals 3).
The expert opinion and evidence-based Core Set could serve as an international standard for what to measure and report concerning functioning of individuals in VR
. The Core Set could also provide a common language among clinicians, researchers, insurers, and policymakers in the implementation of successful VR
. Further testing and validation studies are encouraged.
