I recently attended a lecture put on by another group of healthcare professionals. The subject of the lecture was techniques and tests designed to illustrate clinical effectiveness of their treatment protocols. As I listened to the myriad tests this group has developed, I could not help but think how fortunate we are as orthotists and prosthetists to have such definitive outcomes in the patients we treat. Sadly, however, I believe we seldom share our everyday success with the healthcare community, payors, referrals and others who need to know the significance of our outcomes.

I invite all practitioners to demonstrate these outcomes in the pages of JPO.
