Comprehensive or targeted psychovocational, vocational rehabilitation, functional ability, psychoeducational, kinesiology, occupational therapy, chiropractic and psychological assessments can be arranged. Common issues under consideration relate to:
Read Clinic has been conducting Medical-legal and Insurer examinations for over 4 decades. Our clinic staff are very experienced in addressing matters important to personal injury and long-term disability claims. Senior clinicians are experienced as well in examination of issues related to medical malpractice, or abuse issues. Referral may be made for either clinical examination or document review. Telephone consultation on examination findings, or following document review, preliminary to report preparation, can be arranged as requested.
Where more in-depth evaluation of complex psychological/adjustment issues is necessary in medical legal matters, a 3–5 treatment/assessment sessional structure can be arranged which allows the clinician to explore more substantively emotional and behavioral factors bearing on disability, functionality and long-term adjustment; this is usually followed by consultation with the referrer, and upon request, a report may be generated.
Senior professional staff have extensive experience in providing expert testimony to Insurance Tribunals, and to the courts.
The Clinic has performed Functional Ability Examinations since 1980. These are conducted by clinic kinesiologists, chiropractors or physiotherapists with many years experience in personal injury examinations for Insurers, corporations and law firms. Functional Ability Examinations (FAE) can be arranged in 1, 2, or 3 day formats. The extended examinations are designed to appraise in greater depth patient functionality and tolerances under conditions more closely approximating everyday life and work. Functional ability testing is often recommended to be conducted in concert with rehabilitation psychological examinations, examining clinicians thereafter case conferencing their findings, seeking where possible consensus of opinion on issues related to trainability, employability level, capacity to engage in normal activities of daily living, home making and home maintenance tasks, social and recreational pursuits.
Ergonomic, Worksite Assessment and In-Home Examinations can be arranged, with specific attention to accomodations, legal and claims issues.
