Credits - Amputation

With sincere thanks to all of the patients and healthcare professionals who gave so generously of their time to participate and provide advice for the project and for others living with amputations – this has been an excellent partnership for learning in the spirit of improving services and access to others’ experiences. This project was made possible through the generous funding and administrative support from the Centre de recherche interdisciplinaire en réadaptation du Montréal métropolitain (CRIR) – Institut universitaire sur la réadaptation en déficience physique de Montréal (IURDPM) du Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux du Centre-Sud-de-l’Ile-de-Montréal, and funding from the Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (salary award researcher fund to Dahlia Kairy).
