The VASCERN Paediatric and Primary Lymphoedema Working Group (PPL-WG) has organised a two day face-to-face meeting in Derby, U.K. that will take place from January 18th-19th, 2018.
On the first day, Prof Vaughan Keeley will give participants the chance to visit the Primary and Paediatric Lymphoedema Clinic at Royal Derby Hospital (Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). They will meet the clinic’s multidisciplinary team as well as attend the Derby Lymphoedema Service Consultants Meeting in the afternoon. This will be a good opportunity for the PPL-WG to share best practices in patient care and to network.
The Outcome Measures for Treatment Meeting will be held on the second day, January 19th, 2018, where participants will discuss possible outcome measures for PPL in adults and children (e.g. limb volume measurements, cellulitis index, Quality of Life), the proposed frequency of these measurements, and other important considerations.
Prof Vaughan Keeley, Dr Sarah Thomis, Dr Nele DeVoodgt, Prof Isabelle Quere, Dr Ruth England, and Katie Riches will all be in attendance.
