dc.description.abstractBackground: The Clinical Outcome Routine Evaluation - Outcome Measure (CORE-OM) is a European self-report measure of psychological well-being in adults, which is already adapted for more than 20 countries. The CORE-OM is applicable in primary care settings, in occupational health and educational contexts, as well as for evaluations of mental health services quality. Objectives: To translate the CORE-OM into and adapt it to the Portuguese language. Methods: The translation of CORE-OM to Portuguese was conducted in accordance with the CORE System Trust international guidelines, in collaboration with the authors of the original CORE-OM. This guidelines involved seven independent translations by individuals familiar/non-familiar with the field of mental health and by licensed translators. After the discussion of these translations in a focus group, a final version of the Portuguese CORE-OM was established. Individuals from different age groups, socio-cultural backgrounds and educational levels participated in this translation process. Results: Preliminary results in a sample of 111 individuals (general population) show that the translated measure is confidential and has a good internal reliability. Discussion: The Portuguese version of the CORE-OM is a valid and adequate instrument to evaluate psychological changes, both in research and clinical practice contexts.
