Background and Objectives: The profile of occupational engagement in People with Severe Mental Illness (POES) is one of the time-use-based instruments, which can uncover the rhythm of activity and rest, as well as the variety and range of meaningful occupations. The current study aimed to report the translation process and assess the inter-rater reliability of the Persian version of POES.
Methods: In the present study, the translation process took place in three phases: forward-translation, backward-translation, and two expert panels review. To assess inter-rater reliability, all the POES forms were rated by the first and the third author.
Results: The data achieved from 47 patients with schizophrenia were carefully analyzed. The inter-rater reliability analysis shows the intra-class correlation values were 0.86 in single and 0.92 in average measures.
Conclusion: The reliability results are entirely consistent with the previous studies on POES.
