SPECIAL INTERPROVINCIAL MESSAGE

Hello Everyone,



ALA would like to share a link to the research publication of the Living with Leg Lymphedema Study, which was conducted at the University of Calgary. We shared information about this study to help the researchers recruit participants in 2018. The researchers explored the perspectives of cancer-related lower-extremity lymphedema patients and healthcare providers caring for people at higher risk for or living with lymphedema. The study team developed a novel model of lymphedema care to improve the way doctors and healthcare personnel treat and approach lymphedema during appointments. We hope you enjoy reading about their work: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11764-020-00919-2"
