Course Content

Part 1 – Lymphoedema Assistant Training (LAT)
This 3 day classroom based training will equip the healthcare assistant in the essential skills of lymphoedema management. On completion you will have an introduction to the Anatomy and Physiology of how to assess and treat with essential management skills of compression, movement and drainage, skincare and risk reduction and understanding and assisting with technical skills. An ongoing theme throughout will be health, wellness and lifestyle skills.

Part 2 – Lymphoedema Assistant Advanced Management
This blended learning training is designed to provide you with skills, knowledge, and techniques to advance your lymphoedema management. Training will include a deeper look at the lymphatic system and drainage pathways. Through our research using Lymphofluoroscopy Imaging (ICG), we will introduce you to Fluoroscopy Guided Manual Lymphatic Drainage (FG-MLD®) and the ‘Fill & Flush’ technique. On completion of this training, you will have the theory and skills to treat the patient with more complex and challenging lymphatic conditions, including the management of midline oedema ensuring we provide you with skills to get faster, long lasting results from your treatment.
