Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Background: Cognitive functioning may have implications for engagement in daily occupations
among people with schizophrenia.
Objectives: This cross-sectional study explores relationships between time use assessed occupational
engagement and cognitive functioning among persons with schizophrenia.
Methods: Thirty-nine participants from four mental health care services in Sweden participated.
The Profile of Occupational Engagement among persons with Severe mental illness (POES) and a
cognitive test battery was used.
Results: Higher attention and psychomotor speed and higher scores in information processing
speed, immediate and delayed verbal recall, and immediate and delayed visual recall were significantly
correlated with higher scores in occupational engagement. Regression analyzes
revealed that information processing speed and delayed visual recall best explained the variance
in occupational engagement (R2¼0.36).
Conclusions: Cognitive functioning has implications for occupational engagement, and thus the
ability to perform daily occupations in a balanced rhythm within various social and physical
environments.
