Evaluation and Management of Head & Neck Lymphedema

Head and Neck Lymphedema (HNL) is a devastating condition that frequently follows surgery or radiation for the treatment of head and neck cancer. Not only can HNL affect the patient’s communication and swallowing function, but in severe cases can affect respiration, vision, and even ambulation, not to mention the frustration and embarrassment that accompanies this disfiguring condition. However, with proper treatment, HNL can typically be reduced to a manageable level. This 2 ½ day workshop will provide the academic foundation and practical application for the therapist to successfully implement basic techniques to reduce the edema that can create such devastating impairments. Therapists will learn about: (1) the basic lymphatic system; (2) evaluation and measurement; (3) Manual Lymph drainage (MLD); (4) compression wraps and garments; (5) documentation and billing

Edema Solutions for Wound Specialists

This course was originally created for Wound Specialists but also attracts Certified Lymphedema Therapists (CLTs) interested in a solid review and advanced treatment dialogue.

For the non-certified professional interested in lymphedema therapy, this course provides an excellent introduction to Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), the international gold standard in lymphedema treatment.

Experienced wound clinicians know that effective management of edema is central to successful outcomes. Yet most wound specialists encounter cases in which the standard approach to edema management just doesn’t seem enough. Many wound specialists don’t fully appreciate the lymphatic component present in all edemas. There is a tendency to treat wound care and lymphedema treatment as two distinct treatment approaches, which can’t be blended. When the clinician realizes the knowledge of the lymphedema skill set will help to heal many of their patients, they realize bringing lymphedema understanding into their wound care practice is indispensable.

This course provides detailed instruction in lymphedema treatment as it relates to wound care. It is the purpose of this course to empower wound specialists with the essentials of the lymphedema skill set to allow them to optimally manage all edemas, thereby improving outcomes and often healing otherwise non-healing wounds. Therefore this course is for the clinician who wants to improve outcomes in wound care, not necessarily to create a separate specialty.

The successful student will be introduced to the similarities and differences of the full spectrum of edema types including lymphedema, venous edema, phlebolymphostatic edema, cardiac edema and others. You will also be introduced to suggested edema and wound treatment protocols for multiple limb types including: Charcot foot, the neuropathic limb, elephantiasis, and arteriovenous affected patient. Using proven methods to improve lymphatic function, the successful student will achieve lasting edema reduction, enhance immune function, improve skin integrity and attain lasting wound resolution in many patients.

Superior outcomes will decrease recidivism, shorten time to wound closure, attract new patients to your services, increase satisfaction and provide marketing advantages. The successful student is likely to find their services in high demand. The experienced lymphedema therapist will find value in a detailed review of physiology and treatment techniques, as well as practical instruction that makes the direct connection between lymphedema and wound care, helping to strengthen their management of the lymphedema patient who presents with active wounds.

Optimizing Wound Care Strategies for the CLT
It is common to see wounds in lymphedema practice. Assuch, CLTs are confident about the successful management of the lymphedema, butless so for concomitant wounds. As professionals, CLTs must approach thesecases with knowledge and skill since each patient deserves the best possibleoutcome regardless of the complexity. This 2-day course provides thefoundational skills of clinical wound care based upon accepted standards.

Both lymphedema and wounds are problems of theintegument. Current research describes lymphatic and circulatory anatomy asclosely linked, whereby the lymphatic vasculature may be the primary system forall reabsorption. Literature also supports that insufficiency of lymph drainagenot only contributes to sluggish wound healing and recurrence of ulcers, butmay also be the underlying pathology that contributes to the formation of avenous ulcer. Therefore, controlling periwound lymphedema results in enhancedwound healing. CLTs play a critical role in eliminating pathophysiologic barriersto wound healing and are uniquely aligned to optimally treat and support thelymphatic system. In the case of chronic wounds, lymphatic treatment can helppropel the wound to full closure in the most effective and efficient manner. Assuch, the CLT combines wound care expertise with lymphedema expertise and isbest positioned to heal chronic wounds.

Techniques Review for CLTs

This course presents a practical review of techniques considered essential to the skillful application of Complete Decongestive Therapy. During this two-day venue participants will complete each of the Manual Lymph Drainage lessons precisely as taught at the time of initial certification. Essential upper and lower extremity bandaging lessons will also be reviewed with time for lab practice and instructor assessment.  Review of practical skills required for successful lymphedema management promote and improve therapist competency and clinical outcomes by reinforcing the quality and delivery of each technique for maximum therapeutic benefit. Conversely, techniques which have deviated from the core principles will not be supported by sound physiologic rationale or provide the desired effects, and in fact may prove counter-therapeutic. This course strives to reacquaint Certified Lymphedema Therapists with empirically supported rationale via expert instruction to improve clinical efficacy and maximize outcomes.
