Abstract

Caring for the child and family experiencing a limb loss can be one of the most challenging opportunities for the health care worker. A family-centered approach provides a caring and compassionate way for the child and family to view the complicated medical world. One method that bridges communication between the health care team, patient, family, and community is doll therapy. Individualized doll therapy can help the child understand the amputation, physical limits, prosthetic care, and body image.
