The poster contains a discussion of methods for cross-cultural adaptation of performance-based outcome assessments:

  • Cultural adaptation of performance-based outcomes can improve the quality of these assessments by ensuring tasks, stimuli and instructions are understood
    and appropriate for use in populations of interest;
  • Use of culturally appropriate materials is especially important for tests of functional capacity, which assess an individual’s potential to function in culturally specific real world environments;
  • Description of cultural adaptation of the Virtual Reality Functional Capacity Assessment Tool (VRFCAT), a computer-based assessment of functional capacity originally developed for the U.S.
