Abstract:


Background:

Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common disability in childhood. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) provides a standard framework for classifying performance in people with disability, including children with CP. Linking measures actually reported with the ICF classification promotes best practice, especially pertinent in developing countries such as Thailand. This study aimed to explore the charted demographic data, assessment and intervention measures reported for children with CP in Central region of Thailand using the ICF for children and youths (ICF-CY) framework to clarify the scope of actual management practice in this population.

Methods:

Charts of children admitted to four public hospitals and two schools in 2007-2009 were age stratified, and approximately 48 percent audited (n?equal?269).

Results:

Contextual information was clearly reported, and measures could be classified across all components of the ICF, being mainly classified in Body Structures and Functions and to a lesser degree, in Activities and Participation. Our ability to compare across cultures was affected by poor recording practices limiting the amount and quality of data available.

Conclusions:

Classifying measures of children with CP in Thailand in terms of the ICF-CY framework demonstrates their holistic management as well as where gaps need to be addressed, and thus contributes to best practice.
