Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Confirmatory factor analyses were performed on models of participation depicting multiple assessments of poststroke participation as measuring the same construct. Results suggest that the Activity Card Sort, Reintegration to Normal Living Index, and Stroke Impact Scale–Participation subscale are tapping the same construct. A professional assumption is highlighted, and similar studies are encouraged to strengthen the profession’s ability to validly demonstrate its impact on participation.
