DOMINGUEZ-MUNOZ, Antonio et al. Behavioral Analysis in Disability Assessment Medicine: An Interdisciplinary Proposal. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2017, vol.63, n.248, pp.260-275. ISSN 1989-7790.

A new theoretical framework, the Behavioral Analysis in Medicine is proposed to address the challenges that disability assessment and clinical forensic medicine face in everyday practice. Through an interdisciplinary approach, scientifically based and flexible yet systematically applied, the System of Validity Analysis in Assessment (referred to by its Spanish acronym SAVE) is designed to incorporate a wide array of useful methods, techniques and skills from different sources (forensic psychology, criminology, health law science, deception and fraud detection, etc.). It is structured in three successive phases, Verisimilitude (V1), as verbal content analysis of the statement; Veracity (V2) as congruence between verbal and non-verbal communication, and Verification (V3), the checking process of previously obtained information. These knowledge and abilities are affordable to learn and train. All of them have been scientifically tested and have an extensive number of published references to delve deeper in each subject. Additionally, this process allows an easy adaptation to each case and context, avoiding disturbing those genuinely disabled examinees by going unnoticed unless there is a high probability of fraud. Hence, we believe that every health practitioner, especially the medical examiners, public servants or independent ones will benefit from this way to accomplish every medical consultation, improving the patient-physician relationship and the necessary fraud management whenever necessary.
