What is a Psychological Capacity Evaluation?

A Psychological Capacity Evaluation (PCE) determines whether an individuals’ psychological health may impact on their ability to safely carry out their duties at work as well as assessing an individuals’ capacity to perform various psychological or cognitive tasks with respect to their role.

Conducted by a KINNECT Psychologist, this assessment offers a baseline measurement of an individual’s current symptoms and fitness for work. Psychological Capacity Evaluations are performed by one of KINNECT’s Registered Psychologists with extensive experience in workplace rehabilitation and injury management in addition to psychological injury counselling.

The challenges faced may include:

  • Physical and mental capacity, activity level and work demands,
  • Personal perceptions, beliefs and behaviour relating to work,
  • Workplace relationships with management and co-workers,
  • Supportive conditions at work and attitudes towards health and disability,
  • Experiencing ongoing symptoms of the illness.

A Psychological Capacity Evaluation can provide you with clarity over the underlying return to work barriers and the employee’s current capacity for work with respect to the required physical demands of the role.

How it Works

The assessment itself is conducted over three hours. We utilise evidence-based psychometric tests that are highly valid and reliable.

This allows our psychologists to deliver an objective and standardised understanding of an individual’s current function including:

  • Symptom severity;
  • Ability to think clearly, concentrate, and plan tasks; and
  • Ability to interact with colleagues effectively.
Following the assessment, our Psychologist will complete a detailed report detailing:
  • The assessment results
  • The psychologist’s opinion on the individuals’ capacity to return to work, taking into consideration any medical advice
  • Recommendations on any next steps including treatment and/or changes to suitable duties.
