1. Are occupational therapists the only ones who can use the COPM?

Answer:The COPM is designed for use by occupational therapists because the domain of concern is occupation. However, many multidisciplinary teams use the COPM as an intake tool to identify the client’s concerns and which members of the team need to be involved. In doing this, they often expand the nature of the interview to focus on other issues as well. The interview and scoring methods are transferable to other domains of concern, but then it is no longer the same as the original COPM.
