Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) have historically been a strong tool for providers
to determine work ability and consistency of effort in an employee. A quality FCE should
include an extensive physical examination, a review of the past medical history, basic
psychological testing, performance testing in multiple areas, job specific testing, and a
detailed validity testing protocol. A FCE should be standardized but be able to be adjusted
to accommodate different injuries and job demands in order to answer the referral
question. The examiner should have a medical expertise in order to form an expert opinion
about the employee. There are multiple FCE programs in the marketplace to choose from,
and many can fall short of the required criteria. The presentation will discuss the important
aspects of a quality FCE and what to look for in a FCE when choosing a test and a provider.
