Who will benefit from attending?

  • Those who have been diagnosed with lymphoedema, lipoedema, venous oedema or other oedema problems
  • Those at risk of developing these conditions
  • Family and friends
  • Health care professionals who want to gain a broad overview of lymphoedema/oedema and its management

The presence of consumers/patients at ALA and ILF conferences is important, as it is your experience that gives direction to research and development in the field. Please plan now to join us for this unique opportunity.

Presentations will cover topics such as the causes, diagnosis, assessment and treatment of lymphoedema/oedema/lipoedema, self-management and risk reduction strategies, and coping with the psychosocial aspects of chronic lymphatic conditions. In between all these learning opportunities, you will be free to visit the Exhibition Hall, where you can view the clinical posters and linger over trade displays of all the latest lymphoedema products and discuss ideas with the creative people who design and make them.
