December is a time for the COPM authors to wish all the readers of this newsletter Happy Holidays and a Peaceful and Healthy New Year.
December is also the month that allows an opportunity to examine the past year of COPM papers published in the research literature. The following is a small selection that might be of interest to you. What is noticeable is that occupational therapists and others throughout the world are contributing to practice research using the COPM to determine treatment effectiveness, or comparing two different interventions with clients who have a variety of medical diagnoses.
Hooray for client-centred practice! Enjoy reading and discovering.
