This course offers an introduction to the necessary skills for management of the limb loss patient. Clinical expertise can be difficult to obtain since this population is a small proportion of the rehabilitation caseload. Current research, expert opinions from PT, OT, orthopedic and plastic surgeons, PM&R, prosthetists, as well as patient experiences will be presented. The class addresses the medical issues and common complications that place limbs at risk. Attendees will learn to make educated clinical decisions to improve function. This dynamic course addresses limb loss due to diabetes, vascular disease, trauma, cancer, sepsis and congenital issues. Current guidelines recommend therapy interactions start pre-operatively and continue through the lifespan of the patient.
