COPM’s Global Journey Continues
picture of hands holding globeThe COPM has been translated into many, many languages with some of those languages applied across country boundaries for use by people who share a common tongue. An example of this is the COPM Romanian Edition that will be gaining a new lease on life by its use and application in paediatric practice settings within Moldova. Recently, Samantha Shann, Vice President Finance, World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) and Sue Baptiste spent some time providing educational sessions to rehabilitation practitioners in Moldova to establish a sense of key foundational values and principles of the occupational therapy profession. This has set the context for moving ahead with establishing occupational therapy as a core member of the rehabilitation team in that country. As an interprofessional tool to assist in shared understanding, the COPM was utilized as an outcome measure that can be used by rehabilitation professionals collaboratively within their practice teams.  
This is an example of a mutual, collaborative relationship between the WFOT and the COPM author group through which the two initiatives (establishment of the profession and national adoption of the use of an outcome measure) will enable and strengthen the establishment of occupational therapy as a central profession within the Moldovan rehabilitation context.
The first steps of these initiatives have been taken and more details will be shared when available.
