Female Lower Limb Amputee Core Advisory Committee



Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across the province


Volunteers will share their perspectives as females with lower limb amputations (LLAs) to help guide a research project that aims to better understand the priorities and needs of females with LLAs and determine how those might differ from males with LLAs. They will contribute to a study that addresses an important yet greatly underrepresented population, aiming to improve their quality of life and health care outcomes.

More Information:

Core Advisory Committee Members will collaborate with researchers to develop surveys and guide the development of research questions to understand how priorities and needs might differ between males and females with LLAs. Members will share their thoughts on survey results and technical research findings. They will help connect with volunteers and share findings with the community.

The bottom line is because we’re caring for patients. People who know best are those who are receiving the care so it makes logical sense that we would consult with them about their experiences. By connecting with PVN we have been able to educate our teams about the value of patient partners and how important their perspective is in our services.
