Chronic oedema management, the role of non-specialist allied health professionals

Chronic oedema is a major health issue for many ageing Australians, and as breast and other cancer diagnoses are made in an ever younger population, the number of people who will be affected by chronic oedema in the future is growing.

In this webinar we will revise basic lymphology and factors contributing to oedema formation will be described. Management by specialist lymphatic therapists will be outlined with relevance to the role that non-specialist therapists can play in chronic oedema management. In particular, risk factors for oedema progression will be highlighted and risk reduction behaviours discussed.

This course aims to

• Describe the structure and function of lymph vessels and nodes

• Describe the structure and function of skin and subcutaneous tissue

• Describe the factors contributing to chronic oedema including oedema classification by aetiology and pathogenesis

• Outline best practice oedema management and the role of lymphoedema specialists

• Overview the role of other allied health occupations in chronic oedema management.

• Overview available devices and self-care recommendations
