Absolutely. Nurse experts are accepted as Cost of Future Care Experts in our courts, including some very significant cases (cit. Ediger v Johnston, 2009).
Nurses have the broadest scope of practice in healthcare - especially as Case Managers. They deal - first hand - with the vast variety of health and social issues and treatments of patients including mental health, sexual health, family issues, etc.
We believe nurses are the best specialty to develop most cost of care reports, as do US lawyers.
Canada is unique in having OTs develop cost of care reports. In the US, nurses are the default provider of Cost of Care reports – outnumbering OTs by a ratio of over 50 to 1.
