The assessment also includes extensive psychometric and clinical evaluation of intellectual/cognitive (neuropsychological) functioning, personality/emotional functioning, pain behaviour, vocational potential (from a psychological and neuropsychological perspective) and symptom validity/malingering/feigned incompetence. If appropriate and required, whole person impairment ratings can also be provided.
