About this Live Webinar This course offers a comprehensive perspective 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. New technology, surgical techniques and futures directions are included in discussion. Many of the techniques described in the course can be applied to patient populations with limbs at risk and the multi-trauma patient. The course is primarily lecture with multiple video clips taken throughout the continuum of care. There will be case-based analysis and critical problem solving intermixed with labs, lectures and demonstrations. Access to videos of demonstrated techniques will be included
