This training is hosted by Amputation System of Care and Extremity Trauma and Amputation Center of Excellence. The purpose of this live, knowledge based webinar is to educate health care providers on new amputation care initiatives in the VA. The goals of these new initiatives are to improve access to care, enhance the consistency of care and the timeliness of service delivery. It is anticipated that these initiatives will result in enhanced satisfaction and improved outcomes for Veterans with amputations. The new initiatives that will be discussed include direct scheduling for amputation specialty clinics, utilization of VA Video Connect for prosthesis checkout visits, as well as clinical guidance in the realm of artificial limb fitting. Updates to the VA Amputee Registry and data collection mechanisms will also be included.
