For the first time, a complete multimedia package enables you to conduct and document the IME with confidence and efficiency. More than a "guide," these integrated resources expedite the entire process: - Fourteen printable forms organize paperwork and speed the IME report - A comprehensive text explains the terminology, perspectives, and responsibilities unique to an IME and the presentation of expert testimony - Narrated videos demonstrate correct technique for 28 key tests, including: Waddell's signs Range of motion Low back pain Special tests for nonorganic findings A collaborative team of orthopaedic surgeons and attorneys prepares you for the very different role you assume - and your relationship to key players. Distinct nuances of language, such as "medically probable" and "medically necessary," are sharply defined throughout the text and supported with a detailed glossary. We differentiate concerns specific to workers' compensation cases vs. personal injury litigation, including sample IME reports specific to each.
