National Amputee Awareness Week – October 4-11, 2020

This week Australia is celebrating National Amputee Awareness Week. This is an opportunity for all Australians to become more aware of the impact of limb loss, and this raised awareness helps to remind amputees that they have our support and are not alone. 

This is a week dedicated to celebrating Australians living with limb loss, raising awareness of this lifelong disability, reducing stigma, and bringing the amputee community together to minimise social isolation.

Amputation can have a significant impact on a person’s mental and physical health and wellbeing, as well as affect their ability participate socially and economically. It can also impact on a person’s support network, such as family, friends and colleagues.

National Amputee Awareness Week also serves to inform the wider community by giving information on how they can best manage their own healthcare and manage the risk of potential limb loss.

There is around one amputation performed every hour in Australia, which equates to almost 9,000 per year, and is largely due to diabetes, vascular disease, traumatic accidents, cancer, infection and congenital birth deficiencies.
