Clinical Case Consultation
This service involves our review of your submitted (by email, fax or mail) Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Battery (HRB) test results, followed by a telephone consultation regarding the clinical aspects of the case. This service can be used to obtain consultation on a case or to improve your interpretive skills. Written or oral feedback on your written report is also available with this service.
To use this service, you should fax, email or mail good-quality copies of test results to be reviewed. The patient's name should be disguised on all materials. For all cases, you should send the Summary of Test Results sheet, the Aphasia Screening Test sheet, the Sensory-Perceptual Examination sheet, the page with the patient's drawings, etc., from the Aphasia Test, and their drawing for TPT Memory/Localization; you should also send your plot of the results, using the format employed at the NPC Seminars. For young children, you should also send the drawings of the Star and Concentric Squares.
Once all necessary materials have been received, they will be reviewed, after which we will call you to schedule the telephone consultation. Telephone consultations can be scheduled 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Central Time. Faster turn-around is an option (for an additional charge), depending on our schedules; this MUST be arranged in advance, however. Feedback on your written report, if desired, will likely have a longer turn-around time.
Disclaimer. Consultation can only be provided on complete (or nearly complete) valid protocols using the correct HRB materials. We must decline to review invalid, incomplete, or unreadable protocols; these will be returned to you, along with your check, minus a service fee.
This service does not involve acceptance of any clinical responsibility on the part of The Neuropsychology Center. You will retain full responsibility for the case. All materials received will be treated by The Neuropsychology Center as confidential, and will be used only for the purposes described above. All materials will be returned to you or destroyed, and we will not make or retain copies. Any ethical issues arising from this service will be handled according to APA guidelines and State law.
