Additionally, the use of the COPM interview seemed to enable the processes of forming a partnership and develop collaborative goals. Given the lifespan approach and an emphasis on screening and assessment, the challenge was finding the opportunity for readministration. Because partnerships and collaborative goalsetting have a positive effect on the outcomes of rehabilitation [ 1543 ], these aspects are important parts of healthcare politics and have formed the basis for many government policies in recent years [ 444 ].

Finally, the reference lists of the studies that were read were examined to identify additional studies eligible for inclusion in the scoping review. The COPM is intended for use as an outcome measure, and as such, should be administered at the beginning of services, and again at appropriate intervals thereafter, as determined by the client and therapist.

Furthermore, clients who require help to manage uncertainties have experienced unaddressed problems [ 89 ]. In that study, practice was driven by the biomedical model; thus, the concepts of COPM and CCP seemed unfamiliar and required adjustments from both therapists and their clients [ 49 ]. The COPM has been translated into 35 languages. The inclusion criteria were the following: IV Editorials, commentaries, interviews, lectures, periodicals, and abstracts.

The Canadian occupational performance measure: an outcome measure for occupational therapy.

Environmental factors affected the possibility of conducting a COPM interview as the OTs were reluctant to perform a COPM interview if the focus was on physical functions, that is, in settings where a medical paradigm was dominant [ 1519 — 21 ].


The therapist calculates an average COPM performance score and satisfaction score. Rasmussen1 and J. The qualitative content analysis was based on the recommendations of Graneheim and Lundman, focussing on latent context analysis centred on an in-depth interpretation of the underlying meaning of the text [ 27 ].

As the COPM interview increased awareness of daily life and acknowledged the clients [ 30 ], it helped improve the degree to which the rehabilitation was client centred [ 33 ]. Am J Occup Ther ;71 6: A systematic review revealed five thematic conceptual elements that should be addressed when working with CCP, namely, power, listening and communicating, partnership, choice, and hope [ 6 ].

Apparently, using the COPM could emphasize the importance of clinical judgement for guidance [ 3133 ]. Advanced applications and references can also be found here. Here, the OTs prioritized goals characterized by short timeframes, conservative estimates of outcomes, and physical function, that is, focused on impairments, independent self-care, and locomotion [ 1543 ], whereas the clients focused on resuming their predisease status and participating in social activities [ 1543 ].

Enemark Larsen et al. Twelve studies were included in the review. The active participation of clients is an important aspect of rehabilitation quality as conceptualized in client-centred practice CCP. Twelve studies were identified that used different designs and a range of clients in various settings.

The two first authors performed the analysis. The contents of each study, including their aims, methods, samples, and settings, are summarized in Table 1. However, to use the COPM interview to enhance CCP, professional communication skills, power sharing, and an institutional commitment are required.

The remaining studies were read in full, and studies that were unfit to answer the research question were excluded. Only the examples that appear on this site are endorsed by the COPM authors. Correspondence should be addressed to A.

Thus, starting a rehabilitation process with a COPM interview might help the client begin to come to terms with life. Enemark Larsen and G.

Polatajko is an internationally acclaimed researcher, educator, and practitioner. The themes are narratively presented, and an example of the analysis and translation from meaning units to themes is shown in Table 2. We performed a scoping review in five steps: Meet the Authors Mary Law Mary worked as an comp therapist initially with adults in a rehabilitation centre followed by many years of clinical practice working with children with disabilities and their families.


The Danish Quality Model. In hand therapy, the use of the COPM was thought to help the therapists focus on issues and goals that would assist the client in fulfilling important life roles [ 29 ]. Second, a focus group with participating occupational therapists explored the feasibility of using the COPM in primary care.

The twelve studies included one systematic review [ 28 ], one opinion paper [ 29 ], one quantitative study [ 30 ], four qualitative studies [ 131 — 33 ], and five mixed-method studies [ 1934 — 36 ], including one unpublished PhD dissertation [ 11 ]. Watch an Example 4 Scoring Performance and Satisfaction In step four, the client is asked to use a 10 point scale to rate their own level of performance and satisfaction with performance for each of the five identified problems.

It seems that the more therapists align with the medical paradigm for example, in hospitals, the lower their use of the COPM interview [ 1519 ]. Additionally, in the systematic review by Parker and Sykes, the COPM interview enabled clients to name and frame their problems, allowed them to be experts on their own circumstances, and empowered them to be more critical of their own performance, that is, the use of the COPM seemed to support CCP [ 21 ]. The authors declare that there are no conflicts of interest regarding the publication of this paper.

After a careful examination of the reference lists of the eight studies, four studies were added. Have an existing account?
