The American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics, Inc. (ABC) is conducting a Practice Analysis Survey of the Mastectomy Fitter and the participation of all ABC certified mastectomy fitters is critical. The survey results will help define the certification, education and training of future fitters; in the development of valid and reliable examinations; and convey to others outside our disciplines the scope of services provided by certified mastectomy fitters.
It is critical that ABC obtain as many informed responses as possible in order to ensure the quality of the certification examination and to make sure it fully assesses the domains, tasks, knowledge and skills needed in the profession.
The survey will be emailed in mid-July 2011. ABC encourages all of its certified mastectomy fitters to participate in this important survey. If ABC does not have your current email address, please send it as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Certified mastectomy fitters are in a unique position to provide vital information about the practice of and contribute to the future of the profession by completing and returning the survey.
