  • PT Investigating Interest in Network Focused on Rehab for People With Amputation

    Louise Tisdale, PT, a clinical specialist in the United Kingdom, is investigating whether there is sufficient interest to support a new World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) network focused on rehabilitation for people with amputation. WCPT networks provide a forum for the international exchange of ideas, experience, and expertise in physical therapy. If you want to give and gain support working on rehabilitating people with amputation around the world, or if you would like to develop relationships with international peers and share information about practice, research, clinical guidelines, and outcome measures, contact Tisdale.

    • I am a BK amputee since a 1969 motorcycle accident. Since 1995 I have moderated AMP-L, a listserv for amputees. I also was a model for undergrad and some grad students in Nashville's Belmont University PT program for several years. With that in mind I can assure you, many of the students I met, while very bright and eager, knew very little about amputation. If I can be of any help with your WCPT conference, let me know.

    • I would be interested, as a student, in gaining some insight from such a forum. What I have to offer as far as knowledge and experience is modest, however, I am eager to learn and am well connected within my local diabled community.
