Participation is a central concept in rehabilitation, and by addressing it in science and practice, rehabilitation professionals and scientists provide a link between biomedical science and care and population health. This lecture traces the history of the development of participation and proposes language that includes, but expands, the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health language to foster communication of rehabilitation scientists. It also presents a model of rehabilitation service that focuses on participation that can be developed from evidence generated by rehabilitation scientists.
