Occupation-based assessments and interventions are of vital importance when treating the individual who has sustained a digital amputation. This webinar addresses not only a biomechanical approach to the rehabilitation of these individuals but also the psychological impact and long-term implications for return to meaningful occupations. This webinar highlights both successes and pitfalls of the management of digital amputations through uses of research and case studies.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants should be better able to:
- Identify quantitative and qualitative research findings regarding the management of digital amputations
- Identify etiologies and classifications of digital amputations
- Recognize the importance of addressing the unique occupational profile and psychosocial status of individuals with digital amputations for successful return to their occupations
- Recognize the importance of an occupation-based team approach in the surgical planning and prosthetic decision-making process for individuals with digital amputations
