Dear friends,

It is currently the season for conferences throughout the world and many of these have had lymphoedema as their main theme. Lymphoedema is indeed a real and challenging condition that affects many individuals, and research are support are vital in improving the lives of those affected by it. We, the ILF, will continue to do our part and hope that you will join us in this.

We are a growing community. During our conference in Nottingham in June this year, several countries asked to join and become part of the ILF family. We are currently in contact with them and hope to welcome them on board soon.

Do let us know your news, so that we can share it internationally through this newsletter.

With best wishes from
Christine Moffatt CBE and the ILF Board of Directors

International updates

‘Compression 360 degrees’, Danish Lymphoedema Framework Seminar, 12 October 2023, Copenhagen, Denmark

Compression therapy is essential for the management of lymphoedema and can help in reducing and controlling chronic oedema. At this year’s lymphoedema seminar, the Danish Lymphoedema Framework (DNL/DLF) is focusing on compression by discussing best practice, as well as new and established compression treatments and techniques. Why and how does compression therapy help? What are the patient benefits and difficulties of using compression garments? And, where do healthcare providers see the challenges of working with compression therapy?

These questions and much more will be explored at the ‘DNL/DLF Lymphoedema Seminar 2023 — Compression 360 degrees’, which takes place on 12 October 2023 in Copenhagen, Denmark. 
The programme includes Danish speakers (presenting in Danish), as well as three international speakers: ILF chair, Christine Moffatt CBE (UK), Robert Damstra (the Netherlands), and Katarina Blom (Sweden) (all presenting in English).

The presentations will touch on topics such as compression after liposuction, genital compression, external fixation, day and night compression, compression for bariatric surgery, and the patient perspective.
