Webinar Description:

In the absence of physical pathology, suspicion of malingering naturally crosses the minds of case managers facing employees with different kinds of uncharacteristic complaints. However, how does a medical professional assess malingering? Further complicating this question is the correlation between exaggerated symptoms and mental health conditions. This has made the assessment of malingering the subject of research papers, articles and studies. In this presentation Dr. Michel Schweigert will discuss what malingering is and what it is not, available tests and techniques utilized by the medical community and how medical professionals identify findings suggestive of feigning.
