Topics include but certainly aren’t limited to:
- Early intervention pre and post amputation
- Guidance on Medicare guidelines and documentation as they relate to the population that we serve
- The importance of connecting inpatients with outpatient services including our Orthotics and Prosthetics Clinics to improve the continuity of care, the communication among service providers and to promote a long term care model
