Overview

'Lymphoedema is often devastating, debilitating, stressful and painful. It can cause immense heartache and embarrassment to the patient, family and friends.’ - Madelaine Robertson Squire

These words, taken from the opening chapter of this book, capture the distress and suffering of those afflicted with this common, but poorly understood and often unrecognized condition. Too often Lymphoedema is dismissed as a ‘cosmetic problem’ for which little can or should be done. This excellent, practical reference book provides knowledge, reassurance, and hope for lymphoedema sufferers and those who care for them.

This book contains contributions from experts in medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, and a range of other disciplines, together with valuable insights from those who suffer from the disease.

Ausmed Publications is delighted to publish this Australian edition of Lymphoedema – acclaimed as the standard textbook on the subject in the United Kingdom. Ausmed is dedicated to the empowerment of nurses through knowledge, and this book continues Ausmed’s tradition of quality international textbooks of practical knowledge.
