5. Can we modify the COPM for use in our health research?

Answer: Modifying the COPM is not permitted as it would be a violation of the copyright and integrity of the COPM. The reliability and validity of the COPM are dependent on it being used the way in which it was developed. It is therefore very important that the measure be used correctly and in the same way that it was tested. Please contact us if you have any questions about this issue.
