The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) is an individualized measure designed for use by occupational therapists to detect a client's self-perceived change in occupational performance over time. Includes 3 rating scales and 100 measurement forms.
The COPM has gained worldwide recognition, and is currently the gold standard for measuring occupational performance in both clinical and community settings.
The 5th edition maintains the process and scoring of the original COPM, but offers a number of innovations in format and content.
In addition, there is a new interactive website - www.thecopm.ca - that provides user supports, recent research evidence, examples of using the COPM in practice, research, program development and evaluation and by multidisciplinary teams, access to translations, and the latest COPM news.
Specific changes include:
- A case example linked to video clips on the website.
- The inclusion of a wider range of theoretical and process models and terminology.
- Recent research findings regarding the psychometric properties of the COPM including reliability, validity, responsiveness and utility.
