This article seeks to identify core sets (categories) for multiple sclerosis (MS), in a Delphi process using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Results: 144 second level ICF categories were selected by 23 participants in three rounds. Conclusion: ICF categories may be used to reflect disease complexity and care burden for persons' with MS. Further research is needed to identify ICF categories of relevant personal factors to improve our understanding of the large social and cultural variance associated with them.
