Screen your clients

To address the problem of chronic oedema organisations must identify it in individuals under their care. LES offer an online course to develop the knowledge and skills to screen for chronic oedema in the ageing population and a pathway for intervention.

Select products to meet your clients needs

COS sell products to assist with the management of chronic oedema. This includes providing guidance and mentoring to support effective product selection.

Provide early intervention

Chronic oedema in the legs should be identified and managed as early as possible. The LES Early Intervention course will educate the health professional on how to screen, assess and effectively manage mild below-knee oedema and refer on as required for more complex and severe cases.

Train your care workers

Care workers have an important role in assisting clients who cannot independently manage their chronic oedema. 

Care workers are an integral part of a successful management strategy.

The LES Care Worker course assist in skilling these team members so they help support with the identification and management of chronic oedema

LES Level 1 and 2 Chronic Oedema Lower Limb Courses provide the practitioner with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and clinical reasoning in the management of chronic oedema in the lower limb.
