Amputee Coalition, AAOS offer new tool

The Manassas, VA-based Amputee Coalition and the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists (AAOP) in November released a new tool designed to help amputees and their families and caregivers ask the right questions and communicate their needs when working with their healthcare team.

Consumers and O&P facilities can access the “Working Together for a Successful Outcome,” tool for free at Amputee Coalition (amputee-coalition.org) or AAOP (oandp.org) websites.

The Amputee Coalition’s website gives O&P facilities the paid option to personalize the brochure by adding the name of their business to its cover.
