Torpil B., Turkish Cross-Cultural Adaptation, Validity and Reliability of Canadian Occupational Performance Measure in People with Multiple Sclerosis, Hacettepe University Institute of Health Science Occupational Therapy Program Master Thesis, Ankara, 2017. This study was conducted to determine whether people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) was designed to investigate the adaptation, cultural adaptation, validity and reliability of Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM), a client centered outcome measure, to Turkish. People with MS scores of 24 or higher were included in the study to the Mini Mental State Examination. The translation procedure defined by the World Health Organization has been implemented. After the Turkish translation, the questionnaire was translated into English by a team of native speakers. The final form of the scale was determined by discussing the necessary cultural adaptations by the jury. People with MS were implemented re-test one week after the assessments. During the process, there was no problem in adapting the questionnaire to the Turkish culture. As a result of these evaluations, 342 occupations in which people with MS had problems with COPM were determined. People with MS indicated the most problematic activities in self-care. One of the most problematic activities of people is the use of public transportation and the climbing of stairs. The validity of COPM was determined by looking at the correlation between the Health Assessment Questionnaire, Expanded Disability Status Scale, Multiple Sclerosis Quality of Life-54 physical and cognitive scores. As a result of these examinations, it was determined that the COPM was a valid measurement. On the reliability test, test retest and internal consistency coefficient were checked. Cronbach's Alfa internal consistency coefficient was evaluated after re-testing with one week's search. The internal consistency coefficient was found to be in the range of 0.9-1 and it was found that the COPM was reliable at the perfect level. In conclusion, the Turkish version of COPM was found to be a valid and reliable measurement tool that can be used academically and clinically in people with MS.
