Abstract

Occupational engagement is affected in many persons with severe mental illness (SMI) because of personal, occupational, and environmental issues. However, no French assessment tool measuring occupational engagement in these persons is currently available.

Occupational engagement is affected in many persons with severe mental illness (SMI) because of personal, occupational, and environmental issues. However, no French assessment tool measuring occupational engagement in these persons is currently available. The objectives of the study were to translate the “Profiles of Occupational Engagement in People with Severe Mental Illness” (POES), including a time use diary and an interview, and to measure the interrater reliability of the French version. First, a transcultural validation process of the English version of the POES into French was completed. Second, to determine interrater reliability, ten evaluators assessed 23 participants with an SMI. Specific concepts were clarified with the author of the original tool. No items were added or removed following the translation process. An interview guide was developed to assist the interview on occupational engagement. Analyses indicated high interrater reliability (ICC = 0.94). French-speaking clinicians will be able to use a validated French version of the POES to better capture occupational engagement in people with SMI, facilitating the individualisation of interventions.
