Abstract

Neuropsychologists have been an integral part of rehabilitation-oriented integrated care teams for some time and they provide care that is complimentary to other specialties, such as rehabilitation psychologists. Neuropsychologists are more likely than other specialties to offer objective cognitive data that includes consideration of emotional and behavioral features when assessing patients who have known or suspected brain injury or illness. Objective cognitive data is then often used for treatment and discharge planning as well as anticipating safety issues and impairment of functional skills. Unlike a consultative model, neuropsychologists in rehabilitation must work as part of a team of rehabilitation professionals and understand the contributions each specialty offers patients. This paper will highlight a number of issues pertaining to the practice of neuropsychology in rehabilitation settings including: (i) essential skills and duties, (ii) reimbursement, (iii) practice specifics, (iv) types of recommendations, (v) communication issues, (vi) impact of neuropsychological services, (vii) role satisfaction; (viii) advice for early career neuropsychologists, and (ix) a sample report.
