Objective : Acquired brain injury (ABI) often leads to deficits in executive functioning (EF) which are responsible for severe and longstanding disabilities in activities of daily living. The 'Cooking Task' (CT), an ecological test of EF involving multi-tasking, was developed in France and exhibits excellent psychometric properties. However, the CT has not yet been adapted and validated for the French Quebec context and to account for cultural differences (e.g. vocabulary). Thus our objective is to conduct a cross-cultural adaptation and validation of the CT for the French Quebec context.

Material / Patients and Methods : 1) First, the TC has been translated into Quebec French. Second, two focus groups were conducted with a group of experts to adapt the CT to the Quebec French context. 2) Validation study of Quebec-CT amongst adults who had an ABI (n=30) and in a healthy control group (n=30).

Results : 1) Changes have been made to the recipe and instructions. E.g., graduation of butter: gram (Fr) vs. ml/cup (Qc); the word 'classeur' has been replaced by 'cartable'. 2) The data collection is in progress. We expect that the Quebec-French CT will exhibit good (i) discriminant validity: it will discriminate between the performance of ABI versus healthy control participants (ii) concurrent validity: the results of CT will correlate with The Dysexecutive Questionnaire and the Six Elements Task, and (iii)Inter-rater reliability.

Discussion - Conclusion : This study will provide a new ecologically valid tool for clinicians in Quebec to assess the impact of EF disorders on daily activities and will guide treatment approaches for better discharge planning.
