The purpose of these guidelines is to offer support and resources to those lecturers involved in delivering this area of the syllabus. BACPAR suggests that these guidelines, supported by further reading, should provide a sound theoretical basis to enable the student to work within the field of amputation rehabilitation.
They can also serve as a valuable resource for clinical educators, to assist with the structure of the teaching elements within a placement and help to facilitate learning opportunities.
