OBJECTIVES To link the Menopause Rating Scale (MRS-II) to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and present a clinical application of an ICF-based tool. STUDY DESIGN The MRS-II was linked to the corresponding ICF category. The linked items were used to generate an ICF Categorical Profile. To broadly examine its feasibility in clinical practice, qualitative interviews with three patients were performed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Corresponding items of the MRS-II in the ICF. Perception of the ICF Categorical Profile from patients' perspective. RESULTS A total of 44 concepts from the MRS-II were identified that could be linked to 24 different ICF categories, which all belonged to the component Body Functions. From patients' perspective, filling in the ICF Categorical Profile helped to structure their goals but did not improve the overview of symptoms. CONCLUSIONS The ICF Categorical Profile could be a valuable tool in menopause healthcare; however, it is necessary to adapt the ICF for this specific use. An ICF Core Set needs to be developed in order to accomplish the goal of the European Menopause and Andropause Society and implement its Healthy Menopause Health Care Model in daily practice.
