Abstract

Introduction

An Interest Checklist is designed to capture a person's overall leisure profile, routine and to understand their interest areas. When it was discovered that the checklist was being used alongside the Model of Human Occupation, it was adapted (i.e., the Modified Interest Checklist) to fit with the model's constructs. The checklist items were activities meaningful to the generation of the day. The aim of the project is to understand the current occupational profile the general population to determine if current tools reflect the leisure activities applicable to persons in contemporary society.

Method

This study followed an integrated methodological design which was informed a pragmatic approach, which enabled the subjective perspective of the participant. Participants were be asked to complete an online survey using Survey Monkey (designed to take approximately 15 minutes) using the general population who completed the existing Modified Interest Checklist in its current form and answer open ended questions to provide feedback. The form was then revised to include contemporary leisure occupations (e.g., use of social media, Xbox). A second online survey (designed to take approximately 10 minutes) was conducted to validate the Leisure Activity Inventory and establish its basic psychometric properties.

Discussion

A total of 96 participants completed round one and 79 round two. Feedback received from participants identified the checklist would benefit from design and activity changes. Participants also responded positively to changes in activities such as the inclusion of leisure-based activities only. Previous checklists included other activities that are considered interests such as instrumental activities of daily living.

Conclusion

Participants responded positively to a newly designed checklist that primarily focussed on leisure activities rather than general interests which may include a variety of occupational areas.
