Welcome

The 7th National Lymphoedema Conference will bring together the leading specialists  in the discipline to present and inspire discussion on the issues and debates that are most relevant to lymphoedema treatment and research today.

Attending the conference will provide insight into the latest developments in lymphoedema management, give you a thorough understanding of what to measure when assessing patients with lymphoedema and chronic oedema, and give you the opportunity to understand how lymphoedema affects and interacts with the lower limb, the head and neck, and on exercise. It will also highlight the challenges in managing leg ulcers and give you a chance to share and exchange your ideas with other professionals in the field.

The target audience is:

  • Lymphoedema clinical nurse specialists
  • Community nurses with an interest in lymphoedema treatment
  • Nurse specialists in disciplines that overlap with lymphoedema (e.g. dermatology)
  • Nurse consultants developing their practice and training others
