Dissemination of Amputation and Prosthetic Evidenced-based Medicine (DAP-EM)

Funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality  Grant # R24HS022021


Our Vision

To disseminate evidence-based information in a peer-network where amputees help amputees, where amputees train clinicians, and where amputees can offer emotional peer support to families.


The purpose of this project is to compare two methods of disseminating an evidence-based self-management intervention to amputees. Participants are randomized to one of two groups: one group completes the intervention as an avatar in a virtual world and the other completes the intervnetion online in an e-learning environment.
