Cultural Adaptation of the Virtual Reality Functional Capacity Assessment Tool (VRFCAT) for Use in the UK and Canada

Posted

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.
