Today, we’ll take a look at exactly how life care planners approach a case and the methodology they use to form a life care plan:
- They review an accident victim’s medical records and medical history
- They interview the injury victim if possible regarding medical needs and daily needs
- They interview loved ones, caregivers, or family members to collect information about medical needs, as well as information about the patient’s pre-accident life
- They discuss the patient’s accident and disabilities with members of the patient’s medical team, including doctors and therapists
- They research the possible future medical and day-to-day needs of the patient, including recommended and potential needs
- They develop a life care plan that takes all of the above information into account and considers the patient’s likely future needs, from medical treatments, to therapies, to home and transportation accessories
