OUR MISSION

 

The Mission of Lymphatic Education Africa is to thoroughly educate all healthcare professionals with current research-based and clinically proven treatment solutions and techniques based on the International Lymphoedema Consensus model.

 Lymphatic Education Africa also offers introductory advanced-level programs and specialized workshops to assist the Lymphoedema clinician in maintaining theoretical and practical expertise in the evolving and ever growing field of Lymphoedema management.

 All instructional information is delivered via a superior quality online Learning Management System and then a complete hands-on practical didactic educational model.

 Lymphology is a vastly under-studied area of medical specialization. As such, Lymphoedema is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed and under-treated co-morbidities associated with cardiac, orthopaedic, vascular as well as cancer treatment and survivorship. Lymphoedema and other oedema pathologies that involve uncontrolled swelling can and should be safely treated following an accurate diagnosis utilizing the specialized therapeutic techniques learned in the certification course. The technique of therapy that creates the core of this regimen is based on the International Standards of practice for Complete Decongestive Therapy and Wound Care Management.

 As Executive Director, Suzi Davey is present for and instructs portions of every training course. She remains committed to the delivery of an unaltered, uniform educational system regardless of location, class size, or participant background. Additionally, as part of the school’s enduring commitment to its alumni, our instructors are available to consult with practicing Lymphoedema therapists on challenging patient cases, reimbursement issues, and successful business practices.
