Barriers to outcome measure administration and completion at discharge from inpatient rehabilitation of people with amputation

Heather M. MacKenzie, MD, et al.

When healthcare professionals take into account the wide range of factors that commonly affect patient mobility after lower-limb amputation, the quality of patient care improves. By increasing knowledge of the methodological aspects and feasibility of activity-based outcome measures in patients with lower-limb amputation, healthcare professionals will be better able to select the most appropriate tools for assessment of patient progress, enabling a greater understanding of their patient???s condition. In research, when proper measurement tools are selected, the quality of the resulting data and conclusions is increased.
