To systematize rehabilitation problems and interventions identified in the literature for patients with neuro-oncological disease by linking them to the International Classification of Functioning (ICF) and the International Classification of Health Interventions (ICHI). Previous scoping review (Interventions used in acute rehabilitation for patients with neuro-oncological disease: a scoping review) identified 24 problems and 38 unique interventions used in acute rehabilitation for patients with neuro-oncological diseases. The problems were linked to the ICF and interventions – to the ICHI, using principles of the ICF linking rules. Each concept was linked to the most precise ICF or ICHI category. 27 problems were linked to the body function domains and 6 to the activities and participation domains (second level classification). 3 interventions were linked with the ICF in chapter level “activities and participation” (first level classification). One of the problems identified (inpatient nursing care) was not classified according to the ICF.
34 of the interventions were classified in the ICHI classification. 22 of identified interventions are classified into Body Structures and Functions section, 10 - into the Activities and Participation section, 1 in each Environmental and Health-related Behavior sections. Four of identified interventions are not included in the ICHI (virtual reality, mirror therapy, robotic upper extremity training to improve function and cognitive group therapy). According to the problems analyzed in the literature that target interventions, often do not coincide with the purpose of the specific intervention or are too broadly defined and not specific. This report shows that although rehabilitation works with activities and participation, the literature shows that interventions are mostly covering body functions section in the ICHI.
