The ICF (the international classification of functioning, disability, and health) is a globally agreed framework and classification to define the spectrum of problems in the functioning of patients. ICF tools were developed based on ICF Core Set (ICF-CS) for the clinical application of ICF and patient management in the rehabilitation process. The current case report aimed at using ICF-based documentation tools in the occupational therapy process in a patient with chronic stroke. The case was a male who had a stroke 6 months prior to the study. The occupational therapy provided to this patient included 5 patient management components (examination, evaluation, prognosis, diagnosis, and intervention) using the ICF-based documentation tool. After one month, improvement in balance and mobility, going up and down the stairs without help, independent upper and lower body dressing achieved. The ICF was clinically applied to the occupational therapy practice in this case report. Because of the close relationship of ICF tools with the concept of occupational therapy, particularly client-centered approach and holistic evaluation of patients, occupational therapists can use ICF in clinical practice to have a more comprehensive view toward patients’ recovery.
