Abstract

Background:
Several studies have indicated that persons with chronic diseases perceive problems related to Activities of Daily Living (ADL), including Personal ADL (PADL) and Instrumental ADL (IADL).
However, little is known about how persons with chronic diseases perceive the quality of their ADL task performance in terms of effort/fatigue, use of time, safety risks, and need for assistance. Such knowledge is fundamental in order to develop occupational therapy interventions. The aim of the study is to describe and compare self-reported quality of ADL task performance among different
diagnostic groups with chronic diseases.
Method:
Persons with various chronic diseases including rheumatic diseases, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and schizophrenia were included in the study.
Data related to self-reported quality of ADL task performance were collected from 2007-2015 using the ADL Interview (ADL-I) among different diagnostic groups in various settings (i.e. municipalities, hospitals and research units).
Demographic data and data on self-reported quality of ADL task performance was imported to and later extracted from a database at the Parker Institute. Similarities and differences in relation to selfreported quality of ADL task performance will be investigated both within and between diagnostic
groups.
Results and conclusion:
Data extraction is in progress.
We expect the results of the study to show both similarities and differences in relation to self-reported quality of both personal (PADL) and instrumental (IADL) ADL task performance both within and between diagnostic groups.
