Despite rigorous measures, such as using two reviewers for all sources, this study has limitations that are inherent to scoping reviews in general, such as the synthesis of both published and unpublished studies and qualitative and quantitative research to balance broadness and depth.

These typically range between 1 and 10, where 1 indicates poor performance and low satisfaction, respectively, while 10 indicates very good performance and high satisfaction. In the study by Tuntland et al. Another study showed that clients experienced inadequate rehabilitation that did not emphasize their individual and emotional needs [ 8 ].

Given the lifespan approach and an emphasis on screening and assessment, the challenge was finding the opportunity for readministration. After a careful examination of the reference lists of the eight studies, four studies were added. 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 ]. Thus, starting a rehabilitation process with a COPM interview might help the client begin to come to terms with life.

Since a scoping review is not meant to be exhaustive but rather to provide a good sense of the literature in a particular area, it is likely that some relevant publications were not included in this study.

The therapist then uses these scores to calculate the performance and satisfaction change scores. Mean initial performance and satisfactions scores were 3.

Advanced vanadian and references can also be found here. It seems that caandian more therapists align with the medical paradigm for example, in hospitals, the lower their use of the COPM interview [ 1519 ].

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. Watch an Example 3 Selecting Problems for Scoring In the third step of the COPM process, the client chooses up to five of the most important problems identified in step two to be addressed in intervention.

This illustrated a contradiction of paradigms, for example, the traditional biomedical model, with the therapist as the expert, versus the occupational model of the COPM, the Canadian Model of Occupational Performance the CMOPin which the client is considered the expert [ 1216 ].

Others related to how the environment seemed to affect the ability of the COPM interview to enhance CCP, particularly in terms of the institutional commitment to CCP and the willingness to share the power with the client.

Eligibility The selection of papers eligible for inclusion was guided by inclusion and exclusion criteria based on the research question. Using a semi-structured interview, the therapist initiates the COPM process by engaging the client in identifying daily occupations of importance that they want to do, need to do, or are expected to do but are unable to accomplish.

Other reasons for not using the COPM were that the clients had suddenly became ill or been hospitalized or that they did not have the cognitive ability to undergo a Occupatioanl interview [ 21 ].

Similar discrepancies between therapists and clients have been seen in other studies, for example, in stroke rehabilitation [ 1543 ].

Moreover, given the global nature of the COPM, the exclusion of studies published in languages other than English or Scandinavian makes it unlikely that all relevant studies are included.

As recommend by Levac et al.

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

Because our aim was to examine the literature on the COPM, the optional 6th step of the scoping review procedure, consultation with stakeholders as a required knowledge translation component, was not applied in this review [ 23 — 25 ]. The clients identified goals outside the context of the residence programme, such as returning to work or school, whereas the OTs focused on achieving goals within the residence programme [ 1 ].


This often facilitated partnerships in the CCP through collaborative goals.

Several searches using different word combinations were performed until we found a search strategy that seemed to identify studies on the COPM and CCP. This study aimed to understand how the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure COPM can be used as an outcome measure in primary care and to identify the occupational performance profiles in this setting.

The themes are narratively presented, and an example of the analysis and translation from meaning units to themes is shown in Table 2. Finally, the reference lists of the studies that were read were performancd to identify additional studies eligible for inclusion in the scoping review.

One of the strengths of the measure is its broad focus occupstional occupational performance in all areas of life, including self-care, leisure and productivity, taking into account development throughout the lifespan and the personal life circumstances.
