Compression in heart failure: what does best practice look like?
This event is being run by one of our Platinum partners in conjunction with Legs Matter
What’s it about?
The use of compression therapy in heart failure patients is a topic many clinicians have reservations about with many myths existing, centred around a fear of overloading a patient’s heart.
Supporting the launch of the new best practice statement, this webinar will cover the following learning objectives:
- Raise practitioner awareness of limb oedema in patients with heart failure
- Provide an overview of heart failure & compression therapy as a treatment approach
- Encourage all clinical & support staff to collaborate to provide consistent care to patients with varying degrees of heart failure and oedema
It is vital to remember “apathy is not harm free, watching legs increase in size, blister and weep can be harmful to patients with this condition” (Leanne Atkin, Speaker) – the focus of this year’s Legs Matter Week.
