It is well documented that the successful rehabilitation of persons with disabilities depends on a care plan process with the involvement of an interdisciplinary and multi disciplinary team members. In Ontario, the traditional medical model of the health care delivery system tends to shift toward the new contemporary style of program management model. In this environment of changes in the delivery of health care system, there is growing attention in recent years to the actual measure of the quality of this care. As the financial resources in the health care sector continue to sluink and the demand for the high quality service level persists, a model for a clientcentred care plan appears to be the trend of the 21st Century. Buzz words such as wellness and holistic care indicate that the care plan must consider the client as a whole person and not just a segment of the body parts. This paper is intended to provide a practical outline of the prosthetic needs of the amputees to enable the provision of a holistic client-centred care plan. To ensure the client-centred care plan is responsive to the health care consumer, the program management model must have some guiding principles that all stake holders fmd it practical, meaningful and beneficial to the client's overall rehabilitation needs.
