[en] Objective:
The objective was to create a new measure of everyday life functioning by developing a computerized real-life activity task where participants are asked to prepare a room for a meeting.
Background:
Difficulties in everyday life activities are core features of persons diagnosed with schizophrenia. However, everyday life functioning is usually evaluated with questionnaires, performance-based or observation assessments, all of which contain a number of limits.
Method:
Twenty-one individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia and 21 matched healthy controls completed the computerized meeting preparation task. Patients were also evaluated with an extensive cognitive battery and several measures of symptomatology and everyday life functioning.
Results:
Results showed that performance on the computerized task significantly differentiated patients and controls for a certain number of variables. These variables, summarized in a global score, were significantly correlated with both cognitive and everyday life functioning. Moreover, this composite score significantly predicted 39% of everyday life functioning, whereas a cognitive composite score only predicted 22%. In addition, when the meeting task composite score was combined with symptomatology and the cognitive composite score, these measures significantly predicted up to 73% of everyday life functioning.
Conclusion:
The findings suggest that the meeting preparation task provides a good indication of the level of everyday life functioning in patients with schizophrenia, and may be viewed as a valuable instrument in both an evaluation and remediation context.
