Amputation/Limb Salvage Continuum of Care Skills Course:
What Every Healthcare Provider Must Know - Amputation/Limb Salvage Continuum of Skills Course with Certificate
Saturday, November 10, from 7 AM – 1:30 PM in the Main Lecture Hall
Desert Foot is always at the forefront of managing and preventing complications of the lower limb. However, it is not infrequent that patients succumb to ischemia and infection with resultant tissue loss. Thus, the unfortunate course of action for the patient is often amputation. In this course, we bring attendees education that focuses on evidence-based and best practices for utilizing the latest surgical procedures and advanced wound care technologies to enhance their limb salvage of the lower limb and wound care expertise, as well as best techniques for performing amputations when all else fails. In conjunction with the Arizona Podiatric Medical Association (AzPMA), we have created a dedicated Amputation/Limb Salvage Continuum of Care Skills Course, which includes the Medical/Surgical intervention and Wound Care management necessary to salvage the lower limb. This course will include state-of-the-art didactic lectures that will augment the attendees’ knowledge of current clinical practice. Those who complete the lectures at this Saturday session will earn CMEs, and in addition, will receive a special Certificate of Completion for the Amputation/Limb Salvage Continuum of Care Skills Course that they can use for hospital priveleges.
