Abstract

This study investigated the validity of the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) when included as one of the scales used by therapists with older adults on an inpatient sub-acute rehabilitation setting. Quantitative data from 36 participants in a sub-acute rehabilitation setting was obtained via the COPM, the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) and the Short Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36) using a pre-post methodology. Pearson's r correlations and linear regression analyses were computed. The COPM Performance admission score was significantly correlated with the FIM Total and FIM Physical admission scores (p <.05) while the COPM Satisfaction admission score was significantly correlated with the FIM Total and FIM Physical admission scores (p <.05). The COPM Performance discharge score was significantly associated with the FIM Total, FIM Physical, and SF-36 Physical Health discharge scores (p <.01) while the COPM Satisfaction discharge scores was significantly associated with the FIM Total, FIM Physical, and SF-36 Physical Health discharge scores (p <.01) respectively. Linear regression analyses determined that the COPM's Performance admission score uniquely explained 8.4% of the SF-36 Physical Health discharge score's total variance (p <.05). The results contribute to the COPM's evidence base, supporting its convergent validity and predictive validity.
