Through a combination of lectures, demonstrations, handouts, and hands-on workshops, participants will develop practical skills in amputation care and rehabilitation. By the end of the course, participants will be equipped to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care to individuals with limb loss, promoting optimal outcomes and quality of life.
