Since 2002, our practice has focused on causation analysis for family, criminal and civil proceedings. At times, those children and adults affected by accidents or abuse have life-long care needs as a result of such incidents. Our board certified pediatrician’s interest in assessment of damages led to her completion of the Capital University Law School Life Care Plan Course, and CLCP (Certified Life Care Planner) certification by the International Commission on Health Care Certification.

What is a Life Care Plan (LCP)
“The life care plan is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis, and research, which provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs with associated costs for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs” (International Academy of Life Care Planners, 2003. Established during the 2000 Life Care Planning Summit ).
Evidence-based LCPs should:
- Be consistent via a process for evaluating the patient and disability
- Establish all needs for the patient from the onset of that disability.
- Include the goals of the patient an family.
- Consider with published standards, methodologies and principles.
- Include of medical records, patient and family interviews, the treatment team, clinical practice guidelines, relevant research, and the case management and rehabilitation goals.
