Caring for patients with an amputation is complex and requires a network of specialists. The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) provides 20-minute videos in which you can learn more about the relevant professions and their associated education paths. Specialists from all over the world will demonstrate what good cooperation between the various professions in treatment centres could look like.
The series focuses on interdisciplinary cooperation between orthopaedic technicians, physicians, medical technology engineers, occupational therapists and physiotherapists as well as healthcare administrators.
Each professional group will present their education paths and job descriptions in relation to the care of amputee patients. This will offer you an insight into the specialists’ tasks and skills and help you achieve better interdisciplinary collaboration in future. The resulting mutual understanding should enable professionals from various disciplines to work together on equal terms towards improving patient care.
