Medical-Legal/Insurance

LCP Health services support litigation and arbitration following injury for cases involving personal injury, medical malpractice and human rights.

With over 20 years of experience, our team of Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists are experts in First Nations, Inuit and Metis as well as rural/remote NWT/Nunavut living conditions and resources.

We are experienced in providing the following medical legal reporting services:

Life Care Plan/Cost of Future Care (CFC)

Future care requirements for long term are methodically determined through comprehensive evaluation. The amount of support and assistance required to attain pre-accident level of functioning is clearly outlined in future care costs. Equipment, home modifications, attendant care, homemaking, childcare, travel assistance and other requirements are addressed in a detailed report.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

The FCE is the cornerstone of a worker’s rehabilitation plan. An FCE provides the assessment of the worker’s physical capability to perform the specific job demands of the pre-injury or target occupation. The comparisons are made for strength, mobility, agility, and dexterity and measurements are provided in weight, frequency, and force.

Cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluation (Cog FCE)

A Cognitive FCE is a specific evaluation that assesses the functional impairment of a worker’s memory, attention, planning, problem solving, learning, impulsivity and tolerance for multiple demands. The evaluation may include a standardized assessment of cognition functioning in addition to observations of functional everyday tasks. The evaluation will outline the impact of changes in cognitive function and recommend customized strategies.
LCP Health is the only company certified to conduct Functional Capacity Evaluations in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Disability Case Management

Medical and rehabilitative expertise combined with a sound working knowledge of the health care system ensures effective and appropriate care for clients is provided in a timely fashion. Communication with and between health care team members is initiated and maintained to facilitate a well-coordinated response to the client’s rehabilitation and medical needs. LCP Health pride ourselves in being able to facilitate lasting solutions that benefit everyone involved.

Cognitive Assessments

Establishing some baseline measurements of cognitive function can be an essential guideline for rehabilitation interventions as well as competency assessments/psychoeducational assessments. LCP Health assesses and design cognitive programs that use both restorative and adaptive methods to compensate for a person’s cognitive limitations following injury, illness or disease.

Quality of Life Assessment

An Independent Living Skills Profile determines a client’s functional status in many areas including Safety/Health, Money Management, Memory/Orientation, Social Adjustments and Managing Home & Transportation. This is vital information in decision-making for provision of appropriate levels of support & assistance.
