This session will open with quick tips for ensuring the best fit of a prosthesis to help maximize mobility, including when and how to partner with your patients’ prosthetist. Various outcomes measures for the amputee population will also be discussed, while emphasizing the importance of tracking patient progress throughout the care pathway and introducing common terminology used to communicate outcomes data between healthcare disciplines. The session will close with a discussion around discharge planning. Discharge planning is about how we, as providers, can help guide patients through the healthcare system so they don’t fall through the cracks when they leave our care. For example, when someone gets discharged from a skilled nursing facility, are they being set up or directed to the next phase of their rehab or just sent home to figure it out on their own?
