For several decades, occupational therapy researchers have collected data about clients’ role performance with the Role Checklist, a widely used assessment tool, which collects self-reported information about clients’ roles. The Role Checklist includes two parts; Part 1 gathers data about role incumbency and Part 2 gathers data about role value. In 2008, Part 3 for the Role Checklist was developed to address occupational role performance, specifically prompting clients to rank the quality of their current role performance compared to their highest prior level. This reflects the client perspective of occupational participation corresponding to the performance capacity component of MOHO; thus establishing the Role Checklist Version Two: Quality of Performance (RC V2: QP).
This paper illustrates by a case example how a therapist used the recently translated RC V2: QP in a psychiatric hospital setting in Norway in order to determine the extent to which the RC V2: QP supports the goal setting process as well as the therapist-client experience to verify subjective feasibility. It was reported that use of this instrument to guide the clinical interview was a positive experience for both the client and the therapist. The client had an opportunity to reflect upon his roles and how he would like to change them. The occupational therapist experienced that the interdisciplinary team working with this patient gradually developed a more comprehensive understanding of the patient’s challenges and resources. The RC V2: QP provided a basic set of information about the patient’s roles that was useful for setting treatment goals.
