This presentation provides an overview of Functional Capacity Evaluations. Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) are based upon a theoretical model of comparing job demands to worker capabilities. Historically, return-to-work decisions were based upon diagnoses and prognoses of physicians, but did not include objective work function information. Practitioners, whose core competencies include functional evaluation, began to develop relative functional tests that examined and evaluated the ability to perform physical work functions as described in the Selected Characteristics of Occupations as Defined in the Revised Dictionary of Occupational Titles. Functional examination/evaluation, combined with diagnoses and prognoses by trained clinicians has become an accepted tool for safely returning individuals to employment. The participants will be given information on the importance of FCE's from a medical standpoint, as well as an employer's standpoint, to assist in return to work, reasonable accommodation needs and disability determination.

This presentation reviews recent developments in the field of HIV/AIDS Neurocognitive Disorders (HAND) and how these disorders impact a person’s real world functioning in areas such as employment, social interaction and self-care. While pharmacological developments have dramatically reduced the occurrence of the most severe form of HAND, known as HIV Associated Dementia (HAD), persons with HIV/AIDS may experience significant cognitive deficits that interfere with ability to maintain or resume functional capacity. These impairments may lead to short-term or long-term unemployment, and warrant rehabilitation in multiple domains. Even the most seasoned of care managers will find themselves challenged by the complexities of care planning for those living with HIV/AIDS and HAND. From a neuropsychological perspective, we will explore the areas of functioning most likely to be impacted by HAND. Participants will learn (1) the common symptoms of HAND; (2) how these symptoms impact functioning; and (3) case management strategies to help persons maintain or resume functional capacity.
