Measuring Functional Capacity and Work Requirements: Summary of a Workshop • How are the specific components linked to demands of work? • Is it possible to develop a baseline of work requirements? Can O*NET be used or adapted to meet SSA's need for an occupational classification system? SESSION TWO 1:30–3:30 p.m. Desired Characteristics of Instruments to Measure Functional Capacity to Work Discussion Leader: Alan Jette • What are the strengths and limitations of self-reports, proxy reports, performance testing, and clinical observation? Discussants: Allen Heinemann Constantine Lyketsos • How do the strengths and weaknesses of different measurement approaches vary across the different domains of functioning? • To what extent should assistive devices be considered in measuring functional capacity? • Do different populations have different measurement requirements (e.g., schizophrenia versus arthritis versus spinal injury versus Alzheimer's disease)? SESSION THREE 3:45–4:45 p.m. The Use of Functional Capacity Measures in Public and Private Programs in the United States and in Other Countries Discussion Leader: Patricia Owens • What has been their experience in the use of functional capacity measures in determining disability? Discussants: Richard Burkhauser Ian Basnett • What aspects of their measurement of functional capacity might be relevant for SSA's needs?
