Abstract/Summary Mobile shower commodes (MSCs) are commonly prescribed for adults with spinal cord injury (SCI) to facilitate bowel care and showering. No screening tools currently exist to alert the user or their carers to problems that may require specialist intervention. A modified-Delphi study technique was chosen to develop a screening tool to be known as the Mobile shower commode Assessment Screening Tool (MAST). In the initial questionnaire development phase, a total of 50 elements were identified through content analysis of relevant literature. These elements were sorted into three broad categories: clinical/medical, functional / occupational health and safety and maintenance. Descriptors for a 5-point Likert scale were added along with an option of "Not applicable". The next phases of the modified-Delphi study include identifying the expert panel, determining conditions for consensus and gaining ethical clearance for the study.
