In both clinical and litigation contexts, the life care planning process must be consistent, objective, and transparent. Accordingly, Kincaid Wolstein developed its own research methodology, which has been recognized as among the best in the industry; it is now taught as a standard in life care planning pre-certification program offered by the Institute for Rehabilitation and Education Training.
Respected for his expertise in life care planning, Dr. Wolstein has been retained to create life care plans for a multitude of different injuries and medical conditions. He is also often called upon to evaluate plans submitted by physicians, nurses, and other life care planners. Dr. Wolstein also testifies as an expert witness to educate juries about the importance of the plan in restoring health and wellness and preventing complications.
