Abstract

Providing quality care to the patients who we serve is based on our technical and therapeutic skill and experience, evidence based practice, and ongoing feedback from the patients who use the devices that we fit and train them with. In order to provide quality care to upper extremity amputees and guide them towards prosthetic success, we must collect information from our own practices to support our approaches and assist in supporting the most current rehabilitation for our patients. An outcomes questionnaire was developed and implemented to be used on an ongoing basis with our patient population to insure quality of care and to provide us with information to guide future care of each patient and this population as a whole. This presentation will focus on preliminary findings of patient’s device self-selection and the functional tasks that patients use prosthetic devices for.
