Feasibility and Psychometric Properties of the Finnish Version of the Measure of Processes of Care for Adults

Julkaistu 27.6.2018



To assess the psychometric properties and feasibility of the Finnish translation of the measure of processes of care for adults (MPOC-A) when used in an inpatient rehabilitation setting.


A feasibility study.


Inpatient rehabilitation settings.


A total of 858 people with severe neurological disabilities, musculoskeletal problems, and mental disorders were recruited to the study.


The MPOC-A questionnaire is a self-administered questionnaire consisting of 34 items in five-factorial domains. The construct validity of the translated questionnaire was evaluated using confirmatory factor analysis. To compare the fit of the model to the fit of the independent null-model Comparative Fit Index was used. Internal consistency for the total scale and subscales was calculated using Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficient.


A total of 554 people, mean age 52 years (SD = 9), participated in the study. Most of the responders had musculoskeletal problems ( n = 328, 57%). The respondents rated the client-centeredness in rehabilitation service as moderate ( m = 5.40, SD = 0.81). The five-factor and the one-factor model fitted the data well according to all three indices. Internal consistency showed high reliability between the one-factor and five-factor models for all except one domain (0.49-0.93). The mean for Person Infit for the people with neurological disabilities was higher than for the other two groups ( m = 1.77, SD = 1.32) indicating less predictable response patterns in this group.


The results confirm the appropriate psychometric properties of the Finnish version of the MPOC-A, especially for people with musculoskeletal problems and those with mental health disorders.
