Cross, A., Rosenbaum, P., Grahovac, D., Brocklehurst, J., Kay, D., Baptiste, S., & Gorter, J. W. (2018). A Web-Based Knowledge Translation Resource for Families and Service Providers (The “F-Words” in Childhood Disability Knowledge Hub): Developmental and Pilot Evaluation Study. JMIR Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies, 5(2). https://doi.org/10.2196/10439
The ‘F-words’ (function, family, fitness, fun, friends, and future), popularized by Rosenbaum and Gorter, are an attempt to operationalize the World Health Organization’s (2001) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework. The present study reports on the development, implementation, and evaluation of the ‘F-words’ Knowledge Hub, which is a knowledge translation resource with the goal of informing people about the ‘F-words.’ Using brief and anonymous surveys, Cross et al. (2018) identified areas that respondents found useful as well as areas that require changes to improve the Knowledge Hub before a larger scale evaluation can study the impact on families, clinicians, and organizations.
