Answer: Time is a scarce commodity for all of us. However, something we have found in using the COPM is that the time invested up front doing the COPM saves time in the long run. By focusing on the issues of concern for the client, you may be able to eliminate some further assessments and by completing the COPM, the goals or targeted outcomes for the intervention are established. Additionally, the client may be more motivated to participate in therapy and you may see faster progress towards the goals.
