Individuals with upper limb loss/difference (ULL/D) are likely to encounter secondary conditions that include pain, overuse and perceptions of isolation, and social stigma often require specialized services, including occupational therapy that may be difficult to access. Today’s course highlights the development, implementation, and evaluation of a telehealth program that offered preventive information, strategies, and peer interaction. This course is Day 1 of the virtual conference: Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference.
This course is also part of our Hand Therapy Review Series. This content would fall under the "Specialty Topics in Upper Extremity Rehabilitation" topic area for the CHT examination. The prosthetic series (#2441) referenced in this course has been retired.
