What’s it about?

Often those with lower limb conditions such as chronic oedema can find managing their condition challenging which can lead to treatments failing and patients being labelled as non-concordant with compression therapy. We explore what it means to self-manage, the challenges faced by patients using compression therapy, and give some useful tips in aiding self-management.

Who it’s suitable for?

For both patients and clinicians who have or manage chronic oedema at home.
