The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) is an individualized, client-centered outcome measure for identifying and evaluating self-perceived occupational performance issues. We evaluated the COPM's ability to detect improvement and found that the COPM is indeed able to detect improvement in the client's occupational performance. The COPM allows assessors to evaluate changes in those aspects of performance and satisfaction that concern the client. For the performance scores, the minimal change scores were 1.37 and 0.90 for blinded and reflective scoring, respectively. For the satisfaction scores, the minimal change scores were 1.90 and 1.45 for blinded and reflective scoring, respectively.
