Author: Sesto, Laura Catherine
Abstract: A patient education packet that would be available to recent transtibial amputees , created to promote the proper care and cleaning of the prosthesis and to help give the patient a sense of confidence and independence . The packet consists of two elements , a DVD and a booklet . Both elements were divided into the following sections : In the Morning , During the Day , In the Evening , When to See Your Prosthetist , and Common Skin Issues . This organization was used in order to encourage the patient to develop a daily routine to consistently follow . The packets were distributed to and evaluated by patients of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas Prosthetics -Orthotics Program . The packets were also evaluated by various clinicians who had experience working with amputees .
