Applied Functional Capacity Evaluation and Advanced Critical Thinking

Title: Applied Functional Capacity Evaluation and Advanced Critical Thinking

Course Overview:
The WorkWell Applied Functional Capacity Evaluation and Advanced Critical Thinking course focuses on enhanced FCE evaluation skills and critical thinking related to performance based testing. Participants have the opportunity to refine/refresh their testing and report-writing skills with a focus on problem-solving activities and challenging FCE scenarios.  The training includes collegial dialog with other providers trained in the WorkWell FCE, lab sessions, report-critiquing and review of sentinel/recent research in the area of functional capacity evaluation reliability, validity, and usefulness.

This WorkWell 1-day program is delivered in a seminar format grounded in “participatory learning”- using an outline and planned material to drive reflection, discussion, and review in areas that participants commonly target for additional skill development, while also leaving flexibility to address group goals and experiential learning with the faculty.  Novice clinicians or those that have performed hundreds of FCEs can refine their decision-making abilities and strengthen clinical skills during this class.
