The Lymphoedema Assistant Rehabilitation Programme is an 8-day training course which can be undertaken as a whole or in two parts to ensure you obtain the right skills to suit your role and responsibilities. 

Course Content

The Lymphoedema Assistant Rehabilitation Programme is split into 2 parts. 

Part 1 – Lymphoedema Assistant Training (LAT) 
This 3-day classroom-based training will equip you the essential skills of lymphoedema management.  

  • On completion you will have a thorough understanding of Anatomy, Physiology and pathophysiology, allowing you to assess and treat lymphoedema with essential management skills of compression, movement and drainage, skincare, risk reduction and understanding and assisting with technical skills.  
    An ongoing theme throughout the training will be our focus on treatment, health, wellness, and lifestyle skills. 

Part 2 – Lymphoedema Assistant Advanced Management (LAAM) 

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.
