Written by front-line physicians experienced in disability evaluation, this book dispels confusion and misconceptions regarding fundamental disability evaluation and causation analysis principles.
The American Medical Association (AMA) is the physicians' powerful ally
in patient care. As the only medical association that convenes 190+
state and specialty medical societies and other critical stakeholders,
the AMA represents physicians with a unified voice to all key players in
health care. The AMA leverages its strength by removing the obstacles
that interfere with patient care, leading the charge to prevent chronic
disease and confront public health crises and driving the future of
medicine to tackle the biggest challenges in health care.
AMA Guides to Navigating Disability Benefit Systems: Essentials for the Health Care Professional was written for front-line health care professionals and primary care physicians, specialists, and psychologists and who do not have specialized training in evaluating patients with regard to work capacity, but who often find themselves facing patients who believe they are unable to work because of a health condition.
