The COPM in Use

The COPM process is an open dialogue between client and therapist, each bringing their own expertise and perspective to the conversation. The COPM’s flexibility allows the therapist considerable leeway to ensure the tool works best for the situation. The tool’s flexibility has also enabled its use in practice, research and programs, and within multi-disciplinary teams, both as a program development and program evaluation tool.
