You should determine how this fits into your individual CPD plan; PIBA will provide a suggested framework closer to the time.
Learning Objectives: for members to gain a better understanding of how to litigate amputation claims, how patients are assessed for prosthetic provision and the sorts of technology available, from both a QC speaker and a highly experienced Consultant Prosthetist. There may also be an opportunity to hear briefly from one or more amputees about their experience of using prosthetic limbs.
