O&P News, June 2017
As a young clinician, Sara Morgan, CPO, PhD, a researcher with the Department of Rehabilitative Medicine, Division of Prosthetics and Orthotics at the University of Washington in Seattle, wondered how well she had been identifying patients with cognitive dysfunction.
“I had the opportunity to modify my practice based on various clinical experiences. Mainly, I noticed that patients who had cognitive dysfunction were challenged in understanding or remembering the instructions I was giving them,” she told O&P News. “Years later, I was able to assess it in a study.”
