|Abstract:||Background: Everyday technologies are naturally integrated in people’s daily life. For older adults and adults living with a chronic disease like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the ability to use technologies for health management has become increasingly important. The aim of this study was to investigate inter-rater and test-retest reliability of the Danish version of the Everyday Technology Use Questionnaire (ETUQ) in a sample of older adults with (n = 23) and without (n = 24) COPD. Material and method: The ETUQ was initially translated in accordance with the dual panel approach and then administered to a sample of 47 participants. Svensson’s method for paired ordinal data was utilized to calculate and analyze reliability. Results: Overall, inter-rater and test-retest reliability of the Danish version of the ETUQ demonstrated excellent percentage agreement (PA) (>75%), although for test-retest reliability, nine items demonstrated fair (53%) to good (73%) agreement. Conclusion: This study supports the use of the Danish version of the ETUQ in a sample of older adults with or without COPD. Application to practice: The Danish version of the ETUQ is an evidence-based evaluation that can reliably contribute to clinical occupational therapy and research in Denmark focusing on everyday technology use.|
