Compression therapy for those with heart failure

Thursday, June 10, 2021 15:30 - 16:00

The aim of the session is talk about the challenges that are faced by clinicians and patients with heart failure. This specifically relates to the use of compression therapy in the management of chronic oedema and lymphoedema when using this approach. Despite, these challenges, its use can be beneficial to this patient group, if it is considered against the available evidence, and within a personalised care approach.
