Clinical neuropsychologists assess the cognitive functioning of individuals with a wide range of psychiatric and neurological disorders. They provide feedback to patients that include both conclusions about their diagnosis and prognosis, as well as specific recommendations related to improving their everyday functioning. Despite the importance of this part of the assessment, there has been limited research on the types of recommendations that are provided to patients. The study surveyed 309 clinical neuropsychologists who work with adult patients to address this open question. The results from this research can be used to improve the lives of patients and their family members by informing best practices for what recommendations clinical neuropsychologists should give to patients with specific concerns.
