7 Background – Reason for the Amputee Pathway >No access to community based rehabilitation services for amputees in the northern region of Adelaide >Resulted in Bed blocking, increased length of stay in hospital, multiple readmissions for same issue >Patients were often discharged home for wound healing but required readmission to inpatient facilities for prosthetic training and rehab >Community based rehabilitation for lower limb amputees was identified as a service that could potentially make significant reductions in bed days.

8 Background – The beginnings of the Amputee Pathway >Acute and Primary Health Care within CNAHS met >mapped the current amputee journey from pre-admission to discharge. >Gaps in current service identified >Best practice guidelines were used to map the desired state
