Lunch and Learn Webinar

The American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists are hosting a Lunch & Learn Live Webinar on Wednesday, June 6, from Noon to 1:00 pm ET.

Differences in Outcome Measures Between Patients with Lower-Limb Amputations Classified as K2 versus K3 will be presented by Jaclyn "Meg" Sions, PhD, DPT, PT, OCS. 

Prosthetic prescription is based on functional level classification; i.e., K-Level assignment, but insurance-provided definitions of K-Levels are vague. Use of outcome measures that can differentiate between different K-Level categories; e.g., K2 versus K3, may assist clinicians with justifying a patient's functional level and reduce inter-clinician variability in K-Level assignment and will be discussed during this session.

If you are not a member of the Academy, you can still participate, you can create an Online Learning Center Account on their website.
