Use of the international classification of functioning, disability and health to describe patient-reported disability: A comparison of motor neurone disease, Guillain-Barré syndrome and multiple sclerosis in an Australian cohort

Purpose:
To compare patient-reported disability across three long-term neurological conditions [motor neurone disease (MND), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and multiple sclerosis (MS)] using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF).

Methods:
A prospective cross-sectional survey of Australian community-based persons with MND (n equals 44). Their MND-related problems were linked with ICF categories (second level) using open-ended questionnaires and 'linkage rules' and compared to similar data collected for GBS (n equals 77) and MS (n equals 101) participants.

Results:
MND participants were older (mean age 61 years, GBS 55, MS 49) with more males (66 per cent, GBS 59 per cent, MS 29 per cent). Seventy ICF categories in MND were identified (GBS 41, MS 63): "body function" 15 (GBS 7; MS 18); "body structure" 5 (GBS 3, MS 5); "activities and participation" 40 (GBS 25, MS 30); "environmental factors" 10 (GBS 6, MS 10). The main areas linked in "activities and participation" were mobility, self care, general tasks and demands, domestic life, interpersonal interactions and relationships, major life areas and community, social and civic life; environmental factors included products and technology, natural environment, support and relationships, services, systems and policies.

Conclusions:
Comparison of three long-term neurological conditions will assist with development of a core set of categories to optimise consensus of care and communication amongst treating clinicians.
