  1. 1. RECOMMENDATION FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF FUNCTIONING AND WORK ABILITY DURING THE INTEGRATION PHASE Shadia Rask, Misha Henriksson, Heidi Anttila, Hannamaria Kuusio National expert group for assessing and measuring functioning
  2. 2. 11.3.2020 Purpose of the recommendation • Recommendation applies to all working age immigrants who are entitled to an integration plan based on the Act on the Promotion of Immigrant Integration. • This recommendation is particularly intended for professionals who assess immigrants’ functioning and work ability as part of an initial assessment • The recommendation may also be utilised in other applicable contexts, for example in social and health care services or public employment and business services.
  3. 3. 11.3.2020 The aim of the recommendation • Provide instructions on how the assessment of functioning and work ability should be performed during the integration phase. • Favour early and systematic assessment of functioning and work ability during the integration phase. • Recommendation describes the measurement instruments and methods used for both clinical and research work and for which several language versions are available.
  4. 4. 11.3.2020 We recommend that: 1. The assessment of functioning and work ability should be performed using methods that are linguistically and culturally appropriate. 2. The assessment of functioning and work ability should aim at so-called shared expertise, which involves both the client and the professional bringing their special competence to the assessment situation. 3. The assessment of functioning and work ability should be comprehensive. It should pay attention to both individuals’ language skills, education and work history as well as their physical, mental, social and cognitive functional ability, coping with the activities of daily living, and environmental factors affecting functional ability. 4. The assessment of functioning should be systematic and lead to the necessary further measures and case management.
