Compression Therapy: A position document on compression bandaging

Compression Therapy - Position Document cover



This position document on compression bandaging is the first of a series of in-depth documents on aspects of lymphoedema practice and contributes to the second edition of the best practice document. It seeks to draw together the current evidence base supporting compression as well as celebrating the wealth of international variation in the way in which compression bandaging is used in clinical practice. Most importantly, it includes how the challenges of bandaging are tackled in resource poor countries such as India, a feature that was not present in the first edition. The document has been supported by an international editorial board and peer review process including experts in the field of compression therapy to ensure that in addition to presenting the state of the art in compression, it also is clinically useful for practitioners.
