A Survey of Lymphoedema Practitioners across the US.Journal of Lymphoedema (2010)
An online survey was developed by the American Lymphedema Framework Project (ALFP) executive and research committees to assess the current scope of practice in lymphoedema treatment in the US. The analysis included responses from 415 therapists from 46 states. Respondents typically had a background in physical or occupational therapy. Nearly all reported having completed a 135-hour training course on lymphoedema treatment and management. Treatment options most often reported were comprehensive decongestive therapy (CDT), exercise/movement, risk-reduction education, and skin care.
