The "official" and "correct" way to use ICF qualifiers are often disregarded and there are various "hybrids qualifiers". It will be interesting to have a discussion and to share how people are using the "official" qualifiers and how they are applying "custom-made" qualifiers.

Australian national data collections use two concepts in defining disability; 'Difficulty' which equates to the ICF generic qualifier and 'Assistance'. A second qualifier for activities was developed; 'Assistance with activities'.
The National Institute for Health and Welfare in Finland has published ICF qualifiers exactly as described in the ICF appendix. These qualifiers are intended to be utilized in health and social care information systems when doing structured documentation of functioning.
