The Lymphoedema Rehabilitation Programme

135hr International Training Programme

Join us on our restructured blended learning training programme.

By the end of the course you will have a thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system, enabling you to holistically assess and diagnose the patient with lymphoedema.

You will be able to design and implement an appropriate research and evidence based individualised management strategy selecting from a range of therapies and new innovations.

You will be competent in the field of Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy including Multi Component bandaging and the latest knowledge and research in Fluoroscopy Guided Manual Lymphatic Drainage (FG-MLD®)

Course Content

  • The contents of this course is split into 2 parts;
    Essential Care in Lymphoedema (ECL) – this training is designed to introduce you to the lymphatic system, assessment and diagnosis of chronic and lymphoedema and to gain knowledge, skills and techniques in compression, exercise, skincare, garments & multi-component bandaging. Training will also cover innovations and consideration for clinical practice.
  • Advanced Management of Lymphoedema (AML) – this training is designed to provide you with skills, knowledge and techniques in advanced lymphoedema management. Training will include a deeper look at the lymphatic system and drainage pathways. Achieved through the vast research we have done using Lymphofluoroscopy Imaging (ICG) we will introduce you to Fluoroscopy Guided Manual lymphatic Drainage (FG-MLD®) and the ‘Fill & Flush’ technique and provide you with skills to get faster, long lasting results from your treatment.
