Concussion: Return to Work and Performance-Based Testing

Presented by Matthew Dodson, OTD, OTR/L and Mark Showers, MSOT, OTR/L

Concussion: Return to Work and Performance-Based Testing

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Performance-based assessment offers a solution to difficulties found in both traditional concussion assessment as well as return to work rehabilitation. Performance-based assessments address concussion deficits from an ecologically valid, functional perspective, bridging the gap between "normal" objective testing results and patient reports of day-to-day deficits. This course presents an overview of the policies and procedures involved in return to work rehabilitation for individuals both with and without concussion. Practical components of return to work rehabilitation are emphasized, including how to interact with management or the human resources department, the role of short-term disability coverage, and how to establish the patient's essential job functions. Interactive examples of three performance-based assessments are demonstrated: the Behavioral Assessment of Vocational Skills, the Complex Task Performance Assessment, and the Doll Chair Assembly Task. These interactive segments will empower the learner with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to address challenging clinical scenarios.
