Purpose To determine the effects of Intrathecal baclofen treatment as it specifically relates to goals of performance and goals of satisfaction of performance that are set by parents or caregivers of patients (children/adolescents) who experience difficulties with various functional mobility tasks (e.g. transfers, positioning, dressing, etc.) due to spasticity and/or dystonia (which are common results of Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, etc.). Study Population Children/Adolescents in one of six pediatric hospitals across Australia who are receiving Intrathecal baclofen therapy. Ages ranging from: 4 years, 1 month to 15 years, 11 months Mean Age: 11 years, 1 month Number of patients with Cerebral Palsy: 19 Number of patients with a genetic condition: 4 Number of patients with a brain injury: 2 Number of patients with spasticity-predominant presentation: 10 Number of patients with dystonia-predominant presentation: 2 Number of patients with combined spasticity and dystonia: 11 Number of patients with…

Willis C, Nyquist A, Jahnsen R, Elliott C, Ullenhag A. Enabling physical activity participation for children and youth with disabilities following a goal-directed, family-centred intervention. Research in Developmental Disabilities. 2018;77:30-39. doi:10.1016/j.ridd.2018.03.010.   Although physical activity is important in the pediatric population, children with disabilities are less active than their peers. Several factors have been attributed to this lack of physical activity including environment and accessibility as well as education or training of the family and others working with the child with a disability. The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure and Goal Attainment Scaling are outcome measures that can be used when trying to help this population become more active. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess how participation changed in this population immediately after the intervention and 12 weeks after the intervention. The researchers hypothesized that both participation and satisfaction in physical activity would increase. Study Population: 92 children…

Mihee An, Robert J. Palisano, Chung-Hwi Yi, Lisa A. Chiarello, Carl J. Dunst & Edward J. Gracely (2017) Effects of a Collaborative Intervention Process on Parent Empowerment and Child Performance: A Randomized Controlled Trial, Physical & Occupational Therapy In Pediatrics, DOI: 10.1080/01942638.2017.1365324 The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a collaborative intervention approach on parent empowerment and child performance on a goal and to compare perspectives regarding intervention among parents and therapists. The authors hypothesized that the parents who received the collaborative intervention for six weeks would exhibit a higher mean change in scores on the adapted Family Empowerment Scale (FES) and a higher mean change in parent ratings of performance and satisfaction with performance on the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM). The study population included eighteen children with physical disabilities, one parent of each of the children, and sixteen physical therapists. Children included in this study were between ages 4…

As of February 2017, the COMP review remains largely unchanged from the original blog post on March 16, 2015.  The MCID for the COMP remains not established.  Listed below are a few additions to the original list. Equipment and Materials Needed A paper form can be used or an App can be used on electric devices Psychometric Characteristics Not well established With regard to the overall summation of the COMP (in addition to the original post) Summary Components: Strengths Used in 40 countries and translated to 35 different languages Takes into consideration and utilizes patients important perceived problems Client centered practice Focuses on occupational performance as well as leisure, self-care, and productivity Longevity in use (originally published in 1991)  Weaknesses Designed for the use of Occupational Therapists Data is specific to the paitent, making it a harder test to generalize Legitimacy of the patients viewpoints References: http://www.rehabmeasures.org/Lists/RehabMeasures/PrintView.aspx?ID=928 http://www.thecopm.ca http://www.rehab.research.va.gov/jour/11/485/pdf/eyssen485.pdf Article…

Gimeno H, Tustin K, Lumsden D, Ashkan K, Selway R, Lin JP. Evaluation of functional goal outcomes using the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) following Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in childhood dystonia. Eur J Paediatr Neurol. 2014;18(3):308-16. This study looked at functional outcomes of pallidal deep brain stimulation (DBS) on childhood dystonia by using the Canadian Occupation Performance Measure (COMP) and the Burke-Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale (BFMDRS). This was a prospective study of 30 children and caregivers between the ages of 3-17 with dystonic movement disorders. The Gross Motor Functional Classification System (GMFCS) (n=19/30 GMFCS IV-V) and the Manual Ability Classification System (MACS) (n=20/30 MACS IV-V) were used on both CP and non-CP cases and split into two groups of “severely impaired”…
