This book helps you to understand the use of FCEs in determining disability. Bridging the gap between impairment and disability, the "AMA Guide to the Evaluation of Functional Ability" provides a practical approach to functional capacity evaluations (FCEs) in relation to assessing patients' physical ability. With this book, readers will be able to: know the differences between various functional tests to request the appropriate type; design, interpret and apply FCEs to process workers' compensation and to rate disability; clearly discuss and document how to best use the data in FCEs to assess a patient's ability to perform work-related and non-work-related activities of daily living, or ADLs; and, interpret and apply an FCE report and understand legal implications of FCEs.
