Limb Trauma Educational Series (LTES)

What is LTES?

In April 2022, Amputation Care ECHO became the Limb Trauma Educational Series. As we pivot to offer more clinically-relevant education on limb trauma, the name of the monthly series needed to change to encompass all aspects of the material covered.

The Limb Trauma Educational Series is an educational platform for information-sharing from experts to the multi-disciplinary team that treats patients with an extremity trauma. Monthly sessions are aimed to bring new material, case studies, and best practices into the clinical setting in order to provide exceptional care to the limb trauma and limb loss population. The Limb Trauma Educational Series strives to improve outcomes by reducing variations in processes of care and sharing of best practices and expertise.
