Participation à la validation d’un bilan ergothérapique : validité de construit auprès d’une population gériatrique

Abstract : Background : In occupational therapy, assessments are used to evaluate the abilities and disabilities of disabled people. Among the multitude of existing assessments, the evaluation during a situational simulation allows a reliable determination of occupational performance. Nowadays, functional assessments reproducing kitchen situations are confronted with material and/or time constraints. The objective of this research was to determine the relevance of a "kitchen" assessment compensate for its constraints, by verifying the construct validity with a geriatric population. Method : In the first part we described the assessment and its components. We got a sample of 3 patients with different pathologies (reduced sample due to the Covid-19 pandemic). Then a qualitative and quantitative analysis of data was carried out. Results : The results of the three tests were different. Difficulties related to the pathology seem to be reflected in the rating of the assessment. Previous lifestyle habits had an impact on the achievement of the requested task. Conclusion : Following the assessment, its interests could be verified : the execution was fast, and the constraints related to ingredients and materials were bypassed. The assessment showed a correlation between the pathologies and the scoring of the items. Therefore, it appears relevant to develop it for this population. However, the assessment is not enough to check the construct validity. All of the observations made will allow us to improve it in order to complete it.
