Samenvatting

1. Protocol : The protocol has been developed for health care professionals working in the field of rehabilitation to facilitate the use of the RPS-Form in clinical practice. The RPS-Form, as a common language tool, could therefore make worldwide research possible. It helps to collect data in standardized methods, and it assists researchers in drawing conclusions and to make generalizations worldwide. This protocol has the intention to simplify the acquaintance and practical use with the RPS-Form and to be a study guide for everyone involved in rehabilitation and especially for physiotherapy students and physiotherapy professors. Furthermore, the process of implementation in two centres in Indonesia and Nepal, specialized in Cerebral Palsy (CP), is compared in a descriptive pilot study and can assist in further implementation steps. 2. Descriptive Pilot Study: Purpose: This study outlines and compares the practical experience with the RPS-Form in two centres in Indonesia and Nepal, where conceptual frameworks are still missing to guide health professionals in the rehabilitation process. Several aspects are presented, which turned out to be crucial in the implementation of the form. Hence, this study can assist in further steps for implementation in rehabilitation practice. Methods: The RPS-Form was introduced in a two month period. This included a close observation of the clinical sites (3 weeks), the actual implementation (5 weeks) of the RPS-Form based on the Model of the ICF, and meetings to provide guidance and support with the practical use of the RPS-Form. Results: The study presents a comparison of several aspects in the implementation of the form which took place in two different centres: acceptance of a new clinical tool, general information about the centres, participants involved in implementation, clinical planning, data collection, language, understanding of the concept, realization of implementation. Discussion: In both centres, initial steps of implementation proved to be considerably important for interdisciplinary work processes and contributed to a more systematic approach to rehabilitation tasks and to be supportive for clinical thinking.
