Course summary

The module is an introduction to the management of lymphoedema, aimed at professionals who are primarily treating cancer-related lymphoedema. It will give the student the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the causes and management of this chronic condition. In addition to exploring the evidence base for the care of lymphoedema, the module provides an opportunity to learn and practice the practical skills of compression therapy in a safe, supervised environment.

This is a blended learning module and some content is delivered on-line. E-learning materials are released on specified dates and students are expected to log in and participate in the activities during that week. Students do not need to log in at a specific date/ time.

I got a tremendous amount out of this course and I think the smaller group helped as there was plenty of time for discussion. It’s always interesting to hear other people's experiences.
