  • Integration of conventional therapies and techniques in collaboration with surgeons who perform specialized lymphatic procedures
  • Tips and guidance for growing numbers of home care focused practitioners who encounter lymphedema and related edemas in patients
  • Management of garments including fit, functionality, and patient independence
