Abstract: Practice Evaluation The success of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) depends on its implementation in practice. This article describes an evaluation of the introduction of the ICF framework into an occupational therapy service. Reflections from the working party responsible for its introduction were related to change management theory. The experiences throughout the implementation project could be mapped to an eight-stage process of creating major change (Kotter 1996). The working party concluded that the explicit use of and closer adherence to change management theory could enhance the uptake of the ICF in clinical practice. Further exploratory research is required to support these reflections.
