Evaluation of the Basic Outcome Measure Protocol for Aphasia (BOMPA)
The Basic Outcome Measure Protocol for Aphasia (BOMPA) is a quick and efficient tool designed for both community and rehabilitation SLPs. The BOMPA will capture outcomes of interventions that focus on conversation, participation and quality of life for people with aphasia. This study evaluates SLP inter-rater reliability of videotaped BOMPA assessments.
