Description

Lymphoedema is a progressive chronic condition that affects a significant number of people and can have deleterious effects on patients’ physical and psychosocial health. Even though it may be greatly ameliorated by appropriate management, many patients receive inadequate treatment, are unaware that treatment is available or do not know where to seek help. Several recent systematic reviews have highlighted the distinct lack of evidence for the optimal management of lymphoedema. By presenting a model for best practice in lymphoedema in adults, this document aims to raise the profile of the condition and improve the care that patients receive.
