Abstract

Date Presented 04/07/19

Promoting participation is the core practice of OT. As ideal participation is so individualized and affected by personal and environmental factors, to date we still have not reached consensus on what the gold standard is for measuring participation outcome. This study compared construct validity of two participation measures commonly used in traumatic brain injury. We aimed to help clinicians select a psychometric sound instrument to identify those with participation challenges.
