Editors Genovese (medical director, IMX Medical Management Services) and Galper (physical therapist and exercise physiologist) and 26 co-contributors provide current information and findings, as well as a practical approach to functional capacity evaluations (FCEs). The book outlines what clinicians should know when assessing a FCE report to determine a patient's ability to perform work-related tasks and the activities required in daily living. In addition to discussing psychological and motivational status of patients, the authors also address patient, medical, and legal implications. The book will interest clinicians, as well as risk managers, insurance claims adjusters, and others.
