What will happen after the evaluation?
After the evaluation, the clinical neuropsychologist will review all of the information obtained from the interview(s), questionnaires and testing. It will be integrated into a comprehensive report. Depending on the reason for the evaluation the report will provide a description of neuropsychological strengths and weaknesses, diagnostic impressions and recommendations for further evaluation and/or treatment.
The clinical neuropsychologist usually schedules a follow-up appointment with you to review the findings and recommendations. At that time she will also address any concerns you may have.
Depending on the situation, this type of follow-up can also be provided over the telephone or through other forms of communication. With your permission, the report can be shared with the doctor (or other professional) who initiated the referral and other health care providers involved in your care.
When the referral is for legal or disability determination purposes the patient may not be provided with information about the results of the evaluation. However, when this is the case it is discussed prior to the evaluation as part of the informed consent procedure.
