International survey on Chronic Oedema Outcome Measure

The Chronic Oedema Outcome Measure (ILF-COM) project is aiming to develop an internationally agreed set of outcome measures for patients with chronic oedema. As part of this project, the ILF is currently conducting an international survey. We invite patients, health care professionals and industry representatives worldwide to take part in this survey which can be accessed via this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CYSCKKT

Undertaking the international survey serves several purposes including identifying:

  • The range of outcome measures used in different countries and how these are viewed by the reimbursement and/or health care systems.
  • The issues that are important to patients as outcomes of care.
  • The challenges faced by the medical device industry in gaining reimbursement of products.
  • Outcome measures appropriate for use by reimbursement and health agencies, and for use in chronic oedema research.
