The place of participation according to the ICF classification
Participation, as measured by PM-Scale, is defined as the patient’s involvement in life situations (WHO, 2001).
PM-Scale measure the patient's perceived involvement in different life situations encountered in most African communities.
See the page on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health.
Development of the PM-Scale using the Rasch measurement model
The PM-Scale has been calibrated in adults’ stroke patients (Kossi et al, 2017) according to the level of participation as perceived by the stroke patients themselves.
The original version of PM-Scale was developed in French. However, an English version is also available (see downloads section).
PM-Scale in adults stroke patients
- 22 life situations
- Each item is answered on a 3-level scale (not at all, weakly, and strongly).
- Measurement range: approx. 13 logits.
- Measurement error: 0.08 logits in the centre of the scale.
- Least measurable difference: 0.15 logit in the centre of the scale.
- Separation reliability: 0.93 in our sample of 276 stroke patients.
- Invariant item hierarchy across: gender, age, nationality, level of disability, delay since stroke and CVA side in a sample of 91 stroke patients.
- Test-retest reliability: ICC = 0.99 after a delay of 14 ± 10 days
