Abstract

Interdisciplinary multimodal pain therapy is the gold standard in the treatment of chronic pain. Due to an overall increase in case numbers, the number of MDK examinations leading to the assessment of primary incorrect occupancy is also increasing. This results in a multitude of social court disputes in which medical assessments are required. With knowledge of the legal norms and relevant guidelines or other recommendations, the expert can take this topic step by step. The starting point here is the evaluation of the patient file, followed by the examination of the medical indication, the implementation of the therapy and, finally, the answers to the questions of proof. A test scheme based on the Schröter concept can further simplify this process.
