Describes the development and evaluation of a chart-stimulated recall (CSR) measure to assess the clinical competence of practicing occupational therapists. The measure combines the methods of chart audit and clinician interview, and is based on criteria established by the physician peer review program described by G. R. Norman et al (1993) and the Occupational Therapy Guidelines for Client-Centred Practice (Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists, 1991). Two independent raters assessed 12 occupational therapy clinicians on 2 occasions using a random sample of client cases and records on each occasion. Results show that the CSR tool is reliable, valid, and sufficiently generic to be used in a variety of practice settings as a global measure of on-the-job performance.
