Canadian Occupational Performance Measure performance scale: Validity and responsiveness in chronic pain

Mieke G. Nieuwenhuizen, MSc, PT, et al.

The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) is a generic, individualized, patientcentered outcome measure and might be of aid to enhance communication about problems in participation and for goal setting in rehabilitation in any population. Therefore, this instrument can be of use in Department of Veterans Affairs rehabilitation as well. We have investigated the validity and responsiveness of this instrument in a broad population of patients with chronic pain in whom psychological factors are important maintaining factors. Chronic pain and psychological suffering are more prevalent in veterans, and our results might be applicable for this population. In our study, construct validity of the COPM performance scale was not confirmed. No indication was found that the COPM performance scale can detect changes in occupational performance.
