Melanie Thomas, National Clinical Lead for Lymphoedema Services in Wales and Lymphoedema Physiotherapist requires help. As part of her 5th year doctorate with Swansea University Melanie is conducting research utilising a questionnaire to establish perceptions on lymphoedema risk reduction after breast cancer and is looking for Lymphoedema HCP’s to participate in a questionnaire that takes around 10-20 minutes to complete.
The answers will help Melanie gain an understanding of current views of breast cancer lymphoedema risk reduction recommendations and identify any barriers in disseminating information to breast cancer patients. This will then formulate a Lymphoedema Risk reduction strategy.
All responses which will be treated anonymously and it is requested that all completed questionnaires be returned by post to Melanie by the end of May 2016.
