Abstract

This article describes the collaborative relationship between the physiatrist and life care planner/case manager when preparing a life care plan for a person with an amputation. The complexities and interrelationship of physical, emotional, and pain issues require medical expertise and knowledge for the development of prognosis and relevant recommendations. The life care plan requires coordination between medical and rehabilitation professionals to address the impact of amputation and its associated impairment on all life roles.
