COPM Learning Module

This learning module is comprised of five chapters and is designed for new users of the COPM as well as for those who wish to refresh their knowledge.

The COPM is an individualized, client-centred outcome measure designed to capture a client’s self-perception of performance in everyday living, over time. Originally published in 1991, it is used in over 40 countries and has been translated into more than 40 languages. Throughout the chapters you will meet a number of different clients who will help to illustrate the use of the COPM. The core value of the authors in developing this beginner learning module is that the COPM supports high quality, client-centred, occupation-based practice.
