Feb 2010 Lymphoedema Therapist Special Interest Group meeting

Thanks to all who contributed to our understanding of what is happening in WA tonight on 1 Feb 2010.
1/ Garment prescription: discussed patients managed inpatient; outpatient; CAEP-eligible list.  Tertiary hospitals streamlining their services to respective outlying hospitals within the latter's CAEP catchment area.  Therefore, to the new therapists (CAEP, country or otherwise) in the outlying hospitals, pse do consider the Australasian Lymphology Association for access to newsletters, etc.

2/ As per Best Practice recommendation, pse consider annual ABPI for lower limb lymphoedema patients, if possible.

3/ Julie, our WA ALA rep will email through Lymphoedema Awareness Month (March) support media later. 

4/ Kate will email her Smith and Nephew monthly training schedule when available.  

5/ Next few inservice/meetings monday nights at Crawford Lodge, Monash Ave, Nedlands.
