     $110 The Comprehensive Assessment of Prospective Memory (CAPM) By David Shum and Jennifer Fleming, Griffith University and the University of Queensland, Australia The CAPM was designed to assist in the clinical evaluation of prospective memory function among individuals with acquired brain injury, and to assist in the evaluation of rehabilitation programs designed to serve these people. Prospective memory is defined as “the process and skills required to support the fulfilment of an intention to perform a specific action in the future” (Ellis & Kvavilashvili, 2000, p. S1). The CAPM is a self-report questionnaire which focuses on prospective memory and has three scales to collect comprehensive data on the process of prospective remembering. Data is collected on: The frequency of memory lapses in activities of daily living (Part A) The perceived importance of memory lapses in activities of daily living (Part B) Reasons for remembering or forgetting to carry out intended actions (Part C) This manual is designed to accompany the CAPM and contains: A description of how and why the measure was developed A description of the CAPM scales Information on the development of the Brief Assessment of Prospective Memory (BAPM) Administration and scoring instructions for the CAPM Information on various methods of interpreting CAPM scores Psychometric properties of the CAPM Reference data pertaining to normal (un-injured) and TBI samples from Australia (Appendix 1) Details of research studies using the CAPM (Appendix 2) Comprehensive Assessment of Prospective Memory (CAPM) (Appendix 3) Part A Part B Part C Skill requirements: Health professionals “This will be a very helpful tool for clinicans….” Professor Jon Evans, University of Glasgow Cost of $110 includes postage (within Australia), handling & GST.
