For some time, clinicians and researchers have attempted to find measures of effort and malingering. The problem has arisen from increasing litigation suits and the various motives of patients seeking compensation. Insurers are also under increasing pressure to determine whether or not claimants are genuine and for law courts to be assured that claimants are being honest. There are no single tests that determine effort and there is continuing debate over the usefulness of tests that purport to measure effort and malingering versus the clinical interview.
