Abstract

This article provides a brief description of a training course in International Classification of Functioning (ICF), Disability and Health, Ethics and Human Rights done in the field of the European MURINET project. This course, in its three annual editions, was the product of a joint collaborative work among the Neurological Institute Carlo Besta, the Catholic University, and the National Council of Disability. The training program was formulated to provide knowledge and skills in the field of disability and in the use of ICF. The main result is that a new generation of European researchers was trained. Thanks to this specialized training program, they are now able to conduct and manage research on health and disability, applying the new concept of health and disability based on the ICF biopsychosocial model.
