In this role, the neuropsychologist performs the same evaluation as does the forensic examiner, but, in the interest of expediency, may not gather and review equivalent objective background information and may not interview all relevant collateral sources of information about the examinee. Some authors argue that such reliance on patient self-report represents bias in favor of the patient on the part of the examiner. However, the neuropsychologist performing a clinical evaluation attempts to maintain objectivity, to the same degree as the forensic examiner, in all aspects of the evaluation, including review of the available information and test data.
As such, the objectivity required for critical examination of data and alternative hypotheses may be reduced (Strasburger, Gutheil, & Brodsky, 1997). Such partisanship may be acceptable in the treatment context, although if conflicting information emerges that puts the patient’s treatment plan in question, the treating doctor must consider the new information and adjust or discontinue treatment or seek consultation from an independent colleague as indicated. Even with subsequent collection of extensive objective background information, the therapeutic alliance would limit the neuropsychologist from changing roles and attempting to offer a new, forensic report or offering a forensic opinion.
