FCE’s And Sincerity Of Effort Testing:
Why do we use it and how does it impact our claims
Functional Capacity Evaluations are routinely used to determine an injured workers’ ability to return to work following injury and/or provide treating physicians with an assessment of physical abilities for an impairment rating/permanent work restrictions. But what happens if the patient doesn’t give their full effort during the test? Doug’s presentation will provide an overview of functional capacity evaluations and how utilizing objective sincerity of effort testing can identify invalid test results which can ultimately save employers money in claims settlements.
