Actual MPUA Volunteer Peer-to-peer Support Case Study – a Positive Outcome!
Already we have a case with a positive outcome for Anton, a recent amputee and prospective new prosthetic user. Anton enquired:
“After reading about your association I’m wondering if there’s anyone on your team you would recommend I could talk to? I’ve already met several amputees online, but still never met one in person or really looked at a prosthesis.“
MPUA volunteers responded and here are Anton’s subsequent comments:
“It was lovely to receive their responses. Each of them gave me a different insight into amputations and prosthetics based on their own personal experiences – all very positive and beneficial for me and how I now view my future and the challenges that I’ll face!”
